Hertsmere, Three Rivers and Welwyn Hatfield Shopper Buses

Need a hand getting to the shops?

What is the Shopper Bus service?

Our Shopper Bus will take you from your door to the local supermarket where volunteers can help you carry bags, fetch items, and board on and off the bus.

It is a door-to-door service for people who have difficulties using public transport to go shopping. There may be mobility problems or other special needs. Our low-floor accessible mini-bus is ideal for wheelchair users and people who have difficulties with steps.
