Following the allocation of Government funding specifically to develop Community Transport services, 6 new accessible minibuses have been purchased by Cumbria County Council.
These will enhance the fleet of Community Minibuses available countywide and their usage will be prioritised to provide regular transport, driven by volunteer drivers in areas where scheduled bus services are not sustainable.
This is because of the Section 19 permit legislation under which community minibuses can operate and the need for users of the vehicle to be part of a "membership" scheme.
Passenger fares generated offset the County Council's running costs in providing the minibus.
