Travel Token Scheme
Bishopstoke Parish Council runs a Travel Token Scheme to help local residents get around when they do not have a car and have difficulty using buses. The Council works with local taxi firms, the Bishopstoke & Fair Oak Good Neighbours and the One Community Dial-a-Ride scheme to provide tokens that eligible residents can use to help pay for their travel. If you feel that you, or someone you know, may qualify for the scheme, or simply to find out more about it, please contact the Clerk by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling 07368 487464.
