Sarah is 92. The only way she can visit her husband, a few miles away, in a home is by relying on a community taxi driven by volunteers.
She lives in Pately Bridge, North Yorkshire where there are no buses due to cuts to local government budgets.
Her story comes as a report by Campaign for Better Transport, reveals rural transport in a state of crisis.
The county council has said that subsidising passengers was not sustainable.
