Access for all

Tramper hire and wheelchair loan

For those with limited mobility, we offer wheelchair loan (no need to pre-book) or you can hire out a Tramper (pre-booking essential), an electric all-terrain mobility scooter suitable for rough ground and steeper inclines from the Centre.

To hire the Tramper, you must be an existing member of the North York Moors Mobility scheme. Members can hire it on a pre-booked basis (two trampers are available daily, one at 10.30am and the second at 11.30am). Non-members can sign up and receive training (pre-booking also required). To find out more, please call 01845 597426 or email.

The Tramper scheme has been set up in partnership with Outdoor Mobility.
