Free taxi service?

Jo Hancock shares details of a useful travel service (west Uttlesford) that covers journeys within our area and also to the nearest train Station, Bishops Stortford and Saffron Walden town centres and hospitals in Essex and Hertfordshire. If you are entitled to concessionary travel, the service is free, so you could effectively have a free taxi service as and when you need it!  Children are entitled to reduced fares so could have return travel to Bishops Stortford for £4.50.
