The Cartmell Community Minibus is based in Malmesbury, Wiltshire, UK and is run by volunteers. The Community Bus is exactly that: it is a bus run on a non-commercial, non-profit making basis to support voluntary groups that are benefiting the local community - for example, social, educational, religious or sports organisations.
The minibus is available for hire at 95 pence per mile, inclusive of fuel and insurance. There are seats for sixteen passengers plus the driver. There is a wheelchair lift available at the rear of the vehicle if required.
Any safe car driver with reasonable experience can volunteer to drive the bus. Drivers need to be under 70 years of age or have passed a suitable medical. Drivers also need to undertake a short minibus assessment test. Please click here for further information.
Before a new organisation can hire the minibus a registration form needs to be completed. New drivers need to complete a Driver Registration form. You can download the appropriate documents from our Forms page.
Each booking requires a deposit of £50 which is refundable when the minibus is returned clean and undamaged.
To book our minibus first check the bookings calendar to see if the required time is available, then complete the booking form. To ask a question, please get in touch using our contact page.
