Over-subscribed school buses, unavailable council transport, scattered volunteer services and lack of personal companionship to the elders, disabled and children leave a huge gap in the market for this type of service.
Driving Miss Daisy provide a caring, safe and reliable companion and driving service. Our difference from other transportation providers is the companionship you get with each and every journey. We will attend doctor’s appointments, assist with shopping, or ensure children safely attend after school activities. Special requirements are catered for including assistance with a walker or wheelchair.
