Our Community Minibus has been provided by the Department of Transport through the Community minibus fund. Currently our minibus is self-funded by way of charges made to passengers/groups and fundraising.
Its purpose is to ensure the elderly and disabled in the Hinckley & Bosworth area have the opportunity to use accessible transport to help reduce social isolation improving their quality of life.
Our minibus is a Mercedes 16 seater (plus driver)
It will carry 1 wheelchair (non transferable passenger) which can be clamped but this does lower the seating capacity by 2 seats
We are able to carry foldable wheelchairs and walkers although this may reduce the seating capacity
There is low floor access and we have a hydraulic tail lift which makes boarding easier if required
Our driver is fully trained and is experienced working with the elderly and disabled
