Groups invited to use community bus

Shildon Community Bus has recently received a grant from the County Durham Community Foundation to ensure the continued provision of cost effective transport.

The service is currently available to groups located within 10 miles of Shildon.

There are two 16 seater buses, one of which is disability equipped, and there are no limits on the distance travelled or destinations.

To access the service, groups only need to contact the Community Bus office on 01388 773666 between 9.30 and 12 noon, Monday to Friday, and complete a simple registration form.

There is a small registration fee to cover administrative costs.

A spokesperson for the service said, “We are a totally voluntary organisation and we provide drivers for our buses at no charge.

“The only cost is a very competitive mileage charge.

“All our drivers are trained and tested to the DVLA MIDAS standard and are retested as specified.

“So if you and your group are interested please feel free to call.”
