Community Transport 

The MRC transport scheme has been providing community transport in Coalville and surrounding areas for many years and continue to increase the ability to improve provisions whithin North West Leicestershire. The Marlene Reid Centre provides a wealth of services for the local community. Our Community Transport service provides a variety of services for local residents who may struggle to get out including:

- Local Shopping Trips and Days Out

- Minibus Hire

- Volunteer Driver Service  (To Local Hospitals and Other Health Related Appointments)


Social Car Scheme - Volunteer Driver Service

This service is suitable for elderly and vulnerable people who cannot use a public bus service, or where none exist (applies to over 60's only)

Upon receiveing a hospital or doctors appointment, MRC will arrange for a volunteer driver to collect you on the date of travel, wait up to 1hour at the location, or collect you at a later time, and deliver you home hassle free and direct to your front door.

This service is chargable at a reduced rate to cover the fuel cost and is considerably less than that of a 'taxi' service. An invoice will be sent at the end of the month after travel date occurs. We pride ourselves on the familiarity of our volunteer team who are passionate about our service users and making their lives a little easier.

This invaluable service relies entirely on volunteer car drivers using their own vehicles.

Transport Services 


Using three accessible minibuses, shopping services are provided throughout the week in the Moira, Ashby, Ibstock, Whitwick, Thringstone, Ravenstone, Markfield and Coalville areas.

This is a door-to-door service and fares are compatible with those charged by public transport providers.  People who use a wheelchair are able to use these services as our minibuses are fully accessible.

Social Car Scheme

Volunteer drivers, using their own cars, transport frail older people to Doctors, Opticians, Chiropodists, Dentists, to collect prescriptions, pay bills or to visit sick relatives. Contact us on 01530 512456 or 510515.

Transport to Hospitals

This is specifically for people with hospital appointments who cannot use, or access, public transport. Contact us on 01530 512456 or 510515

Shopping Trips

We are still carrying out our essential weekly supermarket busses to Morrisons and Tesco from Coalville and surrounding areas. Our Volunteer drivers take local residents regularly to Morrisons, Tesco and the Co-Op for their essential weekly shop with the assurance that you can be collected and dropped back at your door in a fully accessible minibus.
