Ring & Ride (Excursions)

For anyone having problem using the normal buses in the Exeter area. The driver brings users into the city centre and to supermarkets on certain days depending on where you live. The Bus is an easy access vehicle which links with Exeter Shopmobility. This service also arranges a number of lunches and excursions throughout the year

City Sights

Genny Segway

Anyone needing help to get around the city centre can borrow a Genny Segway, for sight-seeing, business or meeting friends.

 

Greater Exeter Access

The Greater Exeter Access Project is a facility which offers access to parts of the city via our Tramper vehicle. We are hoping to purchase another Tramper-type vehicle later this year. We also have available our Gennymobility vehicle.
Areas that were difficult to reach for the mobility - challenged are now within the Tramper's scope. Some of these areas include but are not limited to The Quay, Pennsylvania and Topsham.

Our annual boat cruise this year was a fantastic success. We headed off along the coast, calling into the Dawlish bays before heading down toTeignmouth docks, rocking to the music of The Bailjumpers.

Overall we raised a splendid £1306.70 for our charity, for which we thank you.

Put the date in your diary for our next years cruise, which will be on Saturday 11th July, 2020. The theme for the fancy dress will be pirates, rogues and vagabonds.

Look out for more details nearer the date.
