Partially sighted transport, any financial assistance?

Hi, does anyone have any advice on this please. I am registered partially sighted and therefore do not drive. I have no other needs so am not eligible for PIP or other benefits. I live in a rural area which lost all bus services 2 years ago. The nearest bus routes are 3 miles away but there are no local taxis and it costs £18 each way to get a taxi to come out just to get to a bus route. I have looked at all the community transport options but there is nothing to cover my needs. What I would like is financial assistance to be able to get to a bus when I want to go out and return.
Interested to hear from others in this situation or ideas of where to go for advice on tackling it .
