Community Lifts is our local Highland Perthshire volunteer driver scheme.
Volunteers offer to drive members of the community to appointments, to visit friends, go shopping, link with pubic transport or whatever else they might need to do. We offer lifts to anyone in the community – this stretches from Glen Lyon to Loch Tay to Ballinluig but can take people further afield. We need at least 24 hours notice to organise lifts.
Upper Tay Transport have over 40 volunteer drivers who are helping people on a daily basis. Drivers will have some basic checks done to ensure they are competent to volunteer for the scheme.
Passengers pay expenses to the driver – this is 40p per mile. Passengers will be told in advance what the cost of their journey will be.
