Travel Link Community Car Scheme
For people who are unable to use public transport. This may be because of mobility problems or other special needs. We have volunteer drivers who use their own cars. Folded wheelchairs may be taken in most cars, but passengers must be able to transfer from wheelchair to car independently. Wheelchair users unable to transfer may be able to use our wheelchair accessible car. Please ring for further details.
The scheme operates across the borough of Hertsmere (Borehamwood, Bushey, Potters Bar, Radlett, Shenley, South Mimms, Aldenham,
Elstree, Ridge and Well End).
There is a minimum charge of £4 for the first five miles and then 60p per mile thereafter.
FIVE WORKING DAYS notice is needed.
A £10 individual membership is required to access this service.
The Community Car Scheme has operated in Borehamwood and Shenley since 2001 and in Potters Bar from 2009.

Once a private Estate known as Porters Park, then a site of a Mental Hospital, Shenley Park is now a unique self-funded Park for all. The Park is steeped in history and hosts an Orchard, Meadow, Woodland walks, Historic buildings and an amazing 2 acre landscaped Walled Garden with an Amphitheatre. The Park is open all year round and is free to use as are the car parks. Events are held throughout the year, it is a perfect base for walks and has a Tea Room.
The main car park is open from 8am-6pm daily.
Over the winter period the Walled Garden is open weekdays only 12-4pm. Closed at weekends.
