Shopmobility provides, on loan and free of charge, powered scooters, electric or manual wheelchairs, and an escort, if necessary, to anyone with a mobility problem. The service runs in conjunction with the Shopping shuttle. This enables people to be picked up by the shuttle service, be dropped off at the Shopmobility office, and then pick up a mobility aid to go and do their shopping or visit the Town Centre.
