The Hop 'n' Shop is a bus service operated by BATS which serves to provide members with access to local supermarkets, shops, markets and occasional out-of-borough trips on selected days. It is available to all members.
Members are picked-up and dropped-off as close to their home as is possible. It is also possible to book, in advance, a volunteer shopper to help members with shopping and carrying of bags.
Members can book a place on the Hop 'n' Shop bus by telephone from the monthly itinerary sent to them which offers trips to shopping centres, markets and supermarkets on a first come first served basis.
