North Dorset Community Accessible Transport (NORDCAT)

North Dorset Community Accessible Transport (NORDCAT) is a charitable organisation which provides a door-to-door minibus service across the Dorset area.

Who can use NORDCAT?

The service is primarily for the elderly, disabled and socially excluded. The buses are wheelchair friendly and easily accessible for those with mobility problems.

The vehicles are available for groups to hire such as scouts, clubs and societies for the day (with or without a driver). Two wheelchair accessible Berlingo cars are also available for people to hire for as little as an hour or as long as a week.


If you would like to use this service, you will need to register and there is a small annual membership fee of £5. 

Types of journeys

The service enables access to shopping, visiting friends, medical appointments and much more and operates in different parts of the area each day. There are volunteer drivers available to provide transport for health appointments.

Once a week there is an opportunity to visit the larger towns e.g. Poole, Bournemouth, Street (Shopping Village), Exeter, Salisbury and Dorchester.
