Our fleet of minibuses can seat up to 16 passengers so that everyone can travel together. The vehicles are designed so that passengers who have mobility difficulties can access them safely and easily. Our vehicles are maintained to the highest standard.

Our drivers are trained to a high standard:

  • All staff are disclosure and barring service (DBS) checked to an enhanced level;
  • All drivers take practical ability tests before being appointed; and
