MediBus service

Information about what MediBus is, what services are provided, the areas covered and how you can book, change or cancel a journey.

What is the MediBus service?

MediBus services provide residents of the East Riding of Yorkshire with transport from their front door to local hospitals, doctors' surgeries, clinics and dentists. Passengers can also use the service for visiting friends and relatives in hospital. All the vehicles used on the service are wheelchair-accessible.

Please note: the MediBus Service is a different service from the NHS-provided Passenger Transport Service. The MediBus is operated by a single driver and if you require assistance at the hospital, it would be advisable to travel with a companion.

Please also note: East Riding of Yorkshire Council operates a policy where all wheelchairs and scooters must be crash-tested to current ISO 7176-19 standard for their safe and restrained transportation. The policy does not affect passengers who use a folding wheelchair and transfer to a seat.

For further information please contact the MediBus team on 03456 445959.
