The Community Hire Service is an affordable, accessible transport option for registered charity and Community Groups.
Our wheelchair accessible vehicles are available for Community Hire with a seating capacity ranging from 15-17 seats (including the Driver). If a group has a wheelchair user, 2—4 seats are required to be removed (depending on the vehicle) to make the necessary room.
Please note we only have one vehicle capable of carrying 2 wheelchairs passengers at the same time. Although it is possible to hire more than one vehicle (subject to availability) for larger groups.
Vehicles can be booked (subject to availability) for your required duration; throughout the week, over the weekend, for a full week.
