Sent off the application form Saturday.
They must have received it today. As suspected, as I do not already have a disabled bus pass, I’m not entitled to free community transport, and would have to pay - and I’ve sd all chance of getting a disabled bus pass - you need to be getting higher rate mobility DLA (I’ve sd all chance of that either - everything is conditional on something else I won’t get).
I dunno how the charges would compare with the taxis. Because I didn’t speak to her in person, she didn’t say anything about rates.
I suppose if it would be significantly cheaper than a taxi, it might be worth still doing anyway, but if it’s going to work out almost the same, I’ll end up continuing to struggle with the bus.
Why can’t they understand that still being able to walk pretty well is no guarantee of being fine to stand around for hours at bus-stops with no seats - especially if I’ve just come out of an hour of physio, which will mean I’m already knackered?
I guessed it was going to be pointless before I sent it off, really, but I did enclose my £5 for the membership fee (which is not the fee per ride). I’d hoped they wouldn’t actually say no to anyone who’d already sent the money, and explained on the form she has MS.
