Mini Bus Services

In a rural area with limited bus services our minibuses provide a convenient and safe door-to-door service to use in getting to and from day centres, clubs & shopping centres. This service is cheaper than a taxi and operates from 9.00am to 3.00pm Monday to Friday for our elderly and frail clients over the state retirement age and resident in the RACDV Area of Benefit.

If you wish to enquire about minibus trips to our Cottage Day Centre, supported lunch clubs or shopping trips, please call us on 01322 668106 or email



We have two 15 seater minibuses – a Peugeot Boxer and a Mercedes Sprinter – designed for elderly passengers with hydraulic tail lifts, wheelchair access, passenger side-steps and handrails and Eberspacher climate control. Our drivers also play music on request!
