Hire A 14-16 Seater Minibus For Your Groups Day Out!
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?
Westway CT Drivers
Our drivers are fully trained, and DBS checked and are experienced with working with vulnerable adults and/or children. We prioritises the safety of passengers that use our service and this is reflected in our Safeguarding Policy.
Nominate A Volunteer Driver
To help members save money we allow eligible volunteers to drive our minibuses. To be Eligible drivers must be:
- Over the age of 21.
- Held the drivers licence for over 2 years.
- Be registered with us as a volunteer and have valid MiDAS certificate.
You can nominate a volunteer to drive a minibus for you, as a result, you will pay no driver charge saving yourselves money. Simply put, there is no driver charge if a volunteer drives for you. The government states that a volunteer might 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’).
If you have a volunteer willing to drive for you, but they do not have a valid MiDAS certificate, we offer both standard and accessible MiDAS training courses. Midas certificates are valid for 4 years.
Save Money, Ask about Our Member’s Support Fund.
Eligible members can access our Member’s Support Fund which can help groups save even more money on travel.

Why We Use Estimates Not Quotes?
No two trips are the same. Even if you go to the same destination, the same route with the same number of people, there are factors out of both your and our control.
Things like traffic or roadworks can delay journey times, or cause journey routes to become longer. These, like other delays, possible late returns to our depot mean we need to revise the invoice price we issue.
This goes both ways. If the trip takes less time, or is shorter than originally expected, we pass these savings on to you.
