Fenland Association for Community Transport (FACT), offer two services which complement the bus service in Benwick. The key differences between the Dial-a-Car and the Dial-a-Ride are that the Dial-a-Car is a chargeable service used mainly for appointments, whereas the Dial-a-Ride is daily transport, free with your Bus Pass to shopping destinations, allowing everybody their independence of getting out and about.

The Dial-a-Car service is mainly used for those needing to attend appointments at specific times. This is a chargeable service, based on mileage, with a fully trained driver and with affordability in mind. The driver will pick the member up from their house, take them to their appointment, wait and then return them home once they are finished.

The Dial-a-Ride is a five day a week service, providing door to door transport for members. The dial-a-ride service picks users from Benwick up at 9:30 and returns at 2pm. Members who have a Cambs bus pass travel for free, whilst for other users a journey is £5.00.
The service travels to Peterborough Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Wisbech or Kings Lynn on Tuesdays and on Thursdays to March.

To use the FACT bus you need to be a member. Membership is £10 per year provided you meet the criteria which are either living in an area with unreliable transport, or users who find it hard to access other buses/bus stop is too far for them to travel.

All FACT buses are fully accessible and users who need wheelchair access, can sit comfortably in their wheelchairs whilst travelling. To join FACT or to find out more contact them on 661 234 or at
