A range of Minibuses and a Van are available to local groups
We offer a variety of minibuses, with or without a driver, to member groups.
If you run a community group or voluntary organisation based in the boroughs of Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster or Hammersmith & Fulham, you may be entitled to become a member and access our vehicles.
We have a range of 14-16 passenger seat Standard and Accessible Minibuses.
We also have a Transit Van in our fleet that can be booked to transport large items.
Who can drive our Minibuses?
We provide fully trained drivers that can drive a minibus or the van for you, however, to keep your costs down, you can nominate a volunteer driver and book a self-drive minibus. The driver must be over 21 years of age, and they should have held their drivers’ licence for more two years. They must then be registered as a volunteer driver with us.
We are currently running the Westway CT Innovation Fund that offers Free MiDAS Training for up-to two Volunteers per Member Group.
Group Transport Members can nominate up to two of their volunteers to take part in MiDAS Training so that they can drive a Minibus. Everyone driving a Westway CT minibus must have a MiDAS Certificate, this is our policy.
Nominating a Volunteer to drive a minibus means that the overall costs of minibus bookings are reduced. Simply put, there is no driver charge if a volunteer drives for you. The government states that a volunteer might be able to drive a minibus with up to 16 passenger seats using their current car driving licence, as long as there’s no payment from or on behalf of the passengers (it’s not for ‘hire or reward’).
It is Westway CT’s policy that anyone driving a Westway CT Minibus must hold the correct licence plus have a valid MiDAS certificate and be registered on our list of approved volunteer drivers.
If you do have a volunteer willing to drive for you, but they do not have a valid MiDAS certificate, we offer standard and accessible MiDAS training courses.
