Dial A Ride

DACT Dial-a-Ride bus service is a FREE Shopping Bus service  which runs every Tuesday & Friday for anyone in Daventry Town only aged over 65 years.  


  • Register free for this service by calling 01327 701665
  • Once you have registered, passengers just need to call the same number a few days in advance of the trip to book a pick-up time and route.
  • Passengers benefit from a door-to-door shopping service, which operates on three different routes around Daventry Town, from various housing estates.
  • Town Centre drop off point is the bus station New Street near Tesco.
  • The pick-up and return times vary, allowing you approximately 1.5 hours for you to complete your shopping in the Town Centre or meet up with friends for a coffee, etc.
  • If Dial-a-Ride passengers have a need for a DACT Mobility Scooter, this can be collected from the DACT Mobility Shop in New Street by the bus station where the Minibus drops passengers off. 01327 312555.

Our amazing volunteer drivers will assist you with your trolley, rollator, tri walker and no bags are too heavy for us to carry!  We will also see you to your door if necessary

This service is provided completely free of charge to the users made possible by the kind sponsorship of 

Daventry Town Council.
