Tramper hire

The Tramper is an electric all-terrain mobility scooter available for use at Ravenscar Visitor Centre. The scooter has been designed specifically to cover rough ground including mud, grass, cambers and steeper inclines safely, allowing visitors with limited or poor mobility, who have difficulty walking to explore iconic beauty spots in the North York Moors.

The North York Moors Mobility scheme has been set up in partnership with Lake District Mobility. It's part of our continued commitment to make more of our beautiful places accessible to those who are less physically able.

Tramper information:

  • First time users must undertake a short training session to become an Annual Member for £10 or as Temporary Member for £2.50 (which lasts for two weeks and can be upgraded to a full membership by paying the difference).
  • Members have access for 12 months to use Trampers at sites in the Lake District and all 47 Countryside Mobility sites, in the South West.
  • To avoid disappointment all bookings must be made in advance.
  • Trampers are limited to a speed of 4mph with an age restriction of 14 and above.
  • The maximum weight limit to use a Tramper is 25 stone (158 kilos).
  • Hire duration depends on site and route.
  • Hire is free for all members.
  • Please show your member card at the centres to show you’ve had training.
