A range of Minibuses and a Van are available to local groups
We offer a variety of minibuses and a transit van that can be booked with or without a driver, by member groups. If you run a community group or voluntary organisation based in the boroughs of Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster or Hammersmith & Fulham, then you may be entitled to access our vehicles.
You can choose from a range of 14-16 passenger seat standard and accessible minibuses. The minibuses are operated under Section 19 Standard permits as outlined in the Transport Act 1985 and subsequent amendments.
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 the minibuses or the transit van, however, to keep your costs down you can nominate a volunteer driver. They 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.
The government states that you might be able to drive a minibus with up to 16 passenger seats using your 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 MiDAS training courses.
