Fenland Association for Community Transport (FACT) is a not-for-profit organisation in the Fenland area which offers a door-to-door service for people who cannot access local bus routes due to age, disability, living in a rural area with a limited bus service or not having access to a car.
For individuals, Dial-A-Ride is a pre-bookable service operating throughout Fenland six days a week. The service is based on a scheduled route and local residents who have a bus pass can use this service free of charge.
For a group or organisation that requires transport for a day outing, to an event or to enable people to get to a venue, the Group Hire service may be an option. Group Hire enables voluntary groups, community groups, clubs and not-for-profit organisations whose activities are concerned with social welfare, recreation, cultural or similar purposes to hire vehicles with a driver supplied.
FACT is a membership organisation and a yearly membership fee of £10.00 per person is payable to use either of these services.- Visit their website -
