Safety & Accessibility

We place safety, reliability and customer service at the heart of our operations.

  • All of our drivers are CRB checked and undergo thorough training, including safeguarding, disability awareness and data protection.
  • We regularly risk access and audit our entire operation to ensure total peace of mind.
  • We always try to go the extra mile for our passengers but to ensure that we follow the PSVAR regulations, all of our coaches within the criteria have allocated wheelchair spaces. You can find removable seats on our coaches and a lift to ensure that wheelchair passengers can get on and off the coach hassle-free. 
  • Our drivers are trained in disability awareness to ensure that they can spot and offer the appropriate help when needed, without being asked, to give you peace of mind when travelling.

These safety measures are something we take seriously across our entire business and we know how these factors are essential to schools when looking for a reliable coach hire company.
