Ryedale Rover

On-demand affordable transport from your village to local towns and villages.

What is The Ryedale Rover?

Ryedale Community Transport has been awarded a grant from the National Lottery Fund to trial an on-demand transport service in Ryedale. Many villages in Ryedale do not currently have a bus service. The Ryedale Rover is being trialed to supplement existing public transport routes and to provide affordable transport in those areas which do not have regular public transport.

Frequently asked questions

What is an On-demand service?
It is a service that only runs if passengers have pre-booked a place. You cannot use the service unless you are a registered member and have booked a seat.
Who can use the service?
This service is open to registered clients of Ryedale Community Transport.
Do I have to register for the service?
Yes, you need to register as a client to use the service. Registration is easy. Just give us a call and let us know why you need the service.
How do I book a seat?
Telephone our office on 01653 699059 and select option 2 to speak with a member of our booking team.
Will you collect me from my home?
We will collect you from one of the designated pick-up points near your home.
Is there a cost involved?
There is no annual membership charge, but we do ask for a small donation to assist with the running of the booking desk. Each journey will involve a cost. You will be told of the cost at the time of seat reservation.
How do I pay for my journey?
You can pay at the time of reserving your seats by using a debit or credit card or you can pay in cash when you board the Rover. If you pay in cash, please ensure that you have the exact amount as drivers will only have a limited float to provide change.
Can I use a NYCC Bus Pass or other Concessionary Travel Scheme document?
Unfortunately not, the Ryedale Rover is not a regulated bus route but an on-demand service operated by different permits so we are unable to claim for concessionary fares.
