New Minibuses for Those Who Need Help to Travel

Date Published: 03 December 2018
New Minibuses

Rutland County Council has purchased four new minibuses to support passenger transport service in the County. 

The minibuses will be used on a daily basis to transport children to and from mainstream schools. They will also provide specialist transportation for students with special educational needs and adult social care passengers.

Each of the new minibuses is adapted for wheelchair use and has variable seating, which enables seating to be changed depending on the requirements of passengers.

“Local transport services are vital to allow people to travel for work and access education, healthcare and leisure. We expect the new minibuses to form an extremely important part of our current fleet. They are adapted for specialist transportation requirements, providing invaluable flexibility for service users.  The new buses will also help to supplement our current public transport options. This provides us with the ability to increase the number of services running at one time, helping to avoid overcrowding and increasing comfort for passengers at very busy times.”
Councillor Lucy Stephenson, Portfolio Holder for Transport
