Our MIDAS (Minibus Driving Awareness Scheme) trained drivers operate our special buses, they also have received training in customer care. All drivers will be trained to national MIDAS standard.

The drivers gain experience not only in transport matters but also interpersonal skills and how to assist people with physical disabilities.

This service helps people continue membership of groups and it helps the groups to have a varied schedule of events.
