Rural Dorset Wheels to Work (RDW2W) is a Community Interest Company (CIC) first registered in 2014. RDW2W operates a scheme which is for people aged 16 and above who need affordable transport to enable them to access education, employment, and training or simply for getting around.
Unlike many other W2W schemes, the RDW2W scheme is a 'loan to own' scheme whereby at the end of the payment period, you will own the moped rather than having just rented it, with the option to keep it, sell it back to the scheme (if in very good condition) or sell it privately to finance your next vehicle.
On completion of your Compulsory Basic Training (CBT) on a suitable vehicle, you will take delivery of a brand new 50cc or, if over 17, a 125cc motorcycle or moped (cost of 125cc will be extra).
On receipt of your final payment you will receive the log book and the moped will be yours!

A 18 year old female was attending college and a part time apprenticeship which she was able to access using a country bus service. That service was axed at short notice potentially leaving her without education or employment. Joining the W2W scheme resolved all those issues for her and she can now get to travel and have a greater social life.
