Kent Karrier

Kent Karrier is a dial-a-ride service. It will take you from your home to set locations, such as the nearest town centre or supermarket. Group bookings, airport runs and a shopping service are also available.

All services are operated with wheelchair accessible vehicles and our experienced drivers will give you all the help you need.


You must join the scheme to be able to use it. It costs £5 per year and a small fare for each journey.

Concessionary fare passes are not valid for travel on Kent Karrier services. Carers or companions can also travel. They don't need to be members but companions will need to pay the journey fare and carers can travel for free.


You are eligible to join if:

  • you have a medical condition that makes travelling on public transport difficult OR you live in a rural area more than 500 metres from a bus route or railway station
  • you are aged 85+.

As of April 2020, the South East Kent Karrier’s contract with the current operator will come to an end.

The South East Kent Karrier covers the Canterbury, Dover and Folkestone and Hythe districts. A tender has been run for a new operator and is in the process of being appointed. The new operator will be confirmed as soon as all formalities are complete. It does mean that from April 2020 the service will transfer from its current operator, TCTA Ltd.
