Minibus Hire

Ottery Help Scheme manages the Ottery Hospital League of Friends’ minibus. This 14 seater minibus is specially adapted to be able to carry a wheelchair and has a tail lift for ease of access.

The minibus is available to those Clients who are:

  • vulnerable
  • disabled
  • in ill-health
  • clients or volunteers of Ottery Help Scheme
  • not-for-profit organisations with their own Section 19 minibus Permit (Such organisations may use their own drivers if they meet required criteria)

The cost of hiring the minibus is £1.00 per mile. All of Ottery Helps Scheme's volunteer minibus drivers have an Enhanced DBS check.

Minibus charges for Care Homes and all those hiring the minibus under their own Section 19 Permits are:

  • £25 half-day plus 50p per mile
  • £50 full-day plus 50p per mile

Non-OHS hirer organisations are required to sign a Minibus Hire Agreement before hiring and any driver would still need to be trained by us in how to use our minibus and hold a relevant DBS no older than 3 years.

To avoid disappointment, we ask that we receive as much notice as possible when booking the minibus. For more information please call 01404 813041.
