New 16-seater bus for TISBUS

By 25th March 2017News

TISBUS, Tisbury’s community minibus service, has taken delivery of a new 16-seater Peugeot minibus. The smart new minibus, provided by the Department for Transport’s Minibus Fund, restores the TISBUS fleet to four minibuses following the retirement of an aging predecessor earlier this year.

The new bus comes equipped with 16 seats, and wheelchair access ramps.

TISBUS chairman James Scott-Clarke says: “We are very excited with the new minibus and grateful to the Dept for Transport for providing this key asset for TISBUS which keeps the TISBUS fleet up to date and able to support the transport needs of Tisbury and surrounding communities.”

We are also grateful to local estate agents Bassetts who expressed their support to TISBUS with a generous commercial sponsorship of the new bus. Matthew Boatwright, Director of Bassets in Tisbury says; “TISBUS is an invaluable service to our community and we are delighted to be able to support it.”

“It is our mission to provide affordable door-to-door, wheelchair accessible, transport for everyone in the Tisbury and Nadder Valley region” says James. “We’re inviting local people to get more involved in the TISBUS initiative by using the service more regularly and for those who are willing and able, to help the cause by becoming volunteer drivers.”

TISBUS is looking for new volunteer drivers and offers candidates training and support to get involved in this worthwhile enterprise. For more information see our volunteering page or email info@tisbus.co.uk.
