To cater for Devon residents who are key workers accessing employment, DCC is trialling an on-demand subsidised taxi service for Devon residents who are key workers accessing employment only.  This service is intended to replace those journeys which were previously made by bus – a subsidised flat fare will be charged.
The key car service is intended to complement existing bus services which are still running.  If there is still a bus operating on your route to work you should continue to use this, DCC officers will check this before taking your booking.
