It is a public transport service that has replaced the Stagecoach 12 bus service.
A carshare is similar to a bus service only a 'private hire vehicle' picks passengers up instead of a bus. These services are often put in place when a bus service no longer operates in the area and can be known as either a Taxishare or Carshare.
You can travel to:
Chineham Centre (Tesco)
Lychpit Centre (Cromwell Inn)
The vehicle will pick you up from your nearest bus stop. If you are unable to get to a bus stop due to a mobility issue then you can get picked up from your home address or a convenient place nearby. You will need to discuss this when you register.
The Old Basing and Pyotts Hill to Chineham and Lychpit Carshare has replaced the Stagecoach 12 bus service to Chineham and Lychpit.
Anyone living in Old Basing and Pyotts Hill and would like to travel to Chineham and Lychpit can use the carshare.
The service runs Monday to Friday, with three return journeys a day.
