Your community group or local organisation can join Community Transport and have access to our fleet of 20 minibuses with most of them being accessible for wheelchair users. Member organisations can book to use our minibuses on a regular basis or for one off trips. Our minibuses can be booked for as little as an hour or as long as a week or more.
A minibus can only be hired for activities by community groups and organisations which are not profit making.
You can provide a driver or we can supply one of ours. We can even train one of your staff or volunteers to be a fully qualified mini-bus driver*.
