Minibus hire

We offer a Minibus Hire Scheme for voluntary groups in our district. You can hire our minibuses with a driver or drive them yourself.

We have 5 accessible minibuses which carry 12 passengers each.  We have adapted our minibuses with removable seats to take 2 wheelchairs. Each bus has:

  • hand rails
  • low entry steps
  • a tail lift

We train all our drivers to MiDas standard (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme). All our drivers have an enhanced DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) clearance

You can hire our minibuses for:

  • day trips
  • lunch clubs and day centres
  • support groups
  • rehabilitation groups
  • educational trips and after school activities
  • scouting and guiding expeditions
  • shopping trips
  • most other social activities

It costs £40 to join the scheme and then you pay for each journey depending on how far you travel.

You can join the scheme using our online form.
