Community Wheels hires minibuses to groups and organisations such as elderly or disabled groups, youth groups or sport clubs, who are Community Action Dacorum members.
We have 11 minibuses that can each take 12 to 16 passengers, plus the driver, and most have passenger lifts and removable seats so that wheelchairs can be accommodated. The vehicles are spacious, heated and comfortable, and have range of safety equipment, including secure fixings for wheelchairs.
How much does it cost?
Hire costs £1.15 to £1.25 per mile, depending on the size of the minibus, which includes fuel, insurance and AA recovery. There's a minimum hire charge of 30 miles. Full details can be found in the terms and conditions of hire.
Who can drive a minibus?
Minibuses can be hired as a self-drive or with a volunteer driver. All our drivers hold a full, British driving licence with B or D1 entitlement and are assessed to either Hertfordshire County minibus driving 'certificate of competence' or MIDAS standards. We're always looking for new volunteer drivers to join our friendly team and can provide assessment - if you're interested please get in touch.
Contact Keith Gower on 01442 253935 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
How to book?
Call 01442 253935 or email email@example.com for a quote or to check availability. Once you've confirmed the minibus is available for hire when you want it, download and complete the booking form and return it to Community Transport at the Community Action Dacorum office in Hemel Hempstead.
A number of local businesses/organisations support Community Wheels through their sponsorship of individual buses. This helps keep hire charges as low as possible. If you are interested in sponsoring a minibus and having a roaming advert across Dacorum please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
