Huge thank you to Miles Briggs MSP, Shadow Health and Sport, for visiting our Loanhead depot today to learn more about our service and the needs of our passengers. Miles spent time meeting staff and having a look round one of our vehicles. 

Miles later tweeted:  “Great to visit Handicabs (Lothian) this morning to hear more about the Dial-ARide and Dial-A-Bus services they provide. Last year they provided over 83,000 passenger journeys helping support independent living across Lothian.”

Thank you to Councillor Pauline Winchester for visiting our Loanhead office today.

We really appreciate the time to come and learn more about us and to help raise the profile of our charity.

Today Colin Beattie, MSP, for Midlothian North and Musselburgh came to visit our Loanhead base, see our fleet and meet staff to learn more about our services. It was our pleasure to meet with him and tell him more about the difference our services make. 

Thank you for taking the time to visit us Colin.
