Community Mini Busflexible, affordable and accessible solutions to your transport needs
What does it do?
The Bassetlaw Community Minibus is a wheelchair friendly minibus which is available to local community groups and individuals within the district who need flexible, affordable and accessible solutions to their transport needs.
Benefits of the Community Minibus: The minibus is fully wheelchair accessible with an under floor lift ensuring ease of access. Its features include:
- Removable seats
- Hydraulic tail lift
- Hand rail and steps
- Can accommodate up to two wheelchairs
If the lift is needed and passengers in wheelchairs need to be secured, seats will have to be removed to accommodate this, which reduces its seating capacity. There is space for securing two wheelchairs safely.
Who it is for?
The minibus is operated by Bassetlaw Action Centre under Section 19 Minibus Permit which makes it available to non profit making community groups and individuals. Groups eligible to use the minibus would be those concerned with:
- Health and Social Welfare
- Religious Activities
and who need flexible, affordable and accessible solutions to their transport needs.
