Ivybridge Ring & Ride

Community Transport for Ivybridge and surrounding parishes in western South Hams.

Due to the current situation with the Corona Virus Infection we have reduced services.

We are currently still undertaking most Ring & Ride shopping trips (call to book).

We are operating the Volunteer Car Service but due to the limited number of Volunteer Car Drivers available we can only undertake journeys for medical appointments.

The West Dart Bus services have restarted on a reduced timetable; every other Friday.  Bookings are essential.


The office will be closed from Mid-Day on Thursday 24th December 2020.

Telephone messages will be checked on 29th - 31st December

We will reopen on Monday 4th January 2021.


If you are given an appointment between 24th December & 4rd January we will try and find a driver who is prepared to drive but you must contact us before 21st December to give us time to try and arrange it.


There will be a reduced service from 21st December – 4th January inclusive.  Operating on 22nd, 23rd, 29th & 30th December

Full service will resume 4th January 2021.

What do we do?

Community Transport is intended for those people who are isolated and unable to get to the shops, without access to a car and are unable to get to public transport or in areas where there is no public transport.

Ring and Ride

We have Ring and Ride mini buses (with tail lifts) that regularly visit the different parishes and take our passengers to local shopping. We will collect you from your door and help carry your shopping into the house if required. On a Friday we arrange day shopping trips to other centres.
