We started in 2002 with a single bus and grew rapidly to the size we are now with 6 buses, 10 staff and a full time office based in Rushall. We are managed by a board of Trustees comprising:

    Brian Riches (Chair)
    Frank Thomas (Vice Chair)

We have a number of volunteers helping mainly with driving and always welcome more! If you feel you could help us, please email to discuss.

We would also like to recruit more Trustees to help us manage the operation; this is especially exciting as we start a new development phase with our Big Lottery grant and expand our coverage.
