CDM is a charitable organisation specialising in flexible, affordable community transport. Primarily funded by the Department for Regional Development, they provide transport services for individuals and community groups. CDM offers access to vital local services – post offices, shops, doctors, local health services – as well as social outings and community group trips.
What transport services are available?
CDM provides a range of service options tailored to suit individual and group travel requirements:
•For individuals there are Dial a Lift and Social Car schemes providing door to door travel, either in CDM minibuses or by car with vetted volunteers.
•For groups, our 16 seated minibuses are available for hire either with a CDM driver or on a hire without driver. Please note that all drivers must hold a valid Midas certificate and be registered with CDM.
How to use CDM services
In order to use CDM you will need to register as a member. Joining CDM is easy – just contact the office and their staff will be happy to talk you through the registration process. Membership for individuals is £5 and £20.00 per year for groups.
Once you have signed up as a member, simply contact the office to book your transport giving as much notice as possible. We will do our very best to have a vehicle available for you.
