Group Transport Services

What is Group Transport and can I use these services?

Our Group Transport services are available for voluntary and community organisations including charities, social groups and schools. We enable groups to book a minibus for their own exclusive use.

All our minibuses are provided with a professional, uniformed driver who has received MiDAS (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme) training and first aid training, and has been cleared by DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service, previously CRB).

Our minibuses can take between 9 and 16 passengers, including wheelchair users. All our vehicles are fully licensed and fitted with seat belts throughout. All vehicles are maintained and safety inspected to MOT standards every eight weeks, ensuring a commitment to the provision of high safety standards.

When and where can I travel?

Minibuses are available between approximately 9.30am and 2pm Monday to Friday and anytime during evenings, weekends and school holidays. Subject to this availability, you can travel anywhere in the UK, or just down the road.

How do I register?

Call us on 07776 446 414 (between 9.30am and 2pm Monday to Friday).

How do I book a minibus?

Call us on 07776 446 414 (between 9.30am and 2pm Monday to Friday), or email cornwall@ectcharity.co.uk.

How much does it cost?

We are happy to quote for any requirement and charges are dependent on the expected mileage and driver hours. There is a minimum charge per vehicle of £75 for a local return day trip during term-time.

How are these services funded?

We do not receive any subsidy for our Group Transport services – we provide them as part of our commitment to help improve transport opportunities within the community.
