Booking a Minibus

Dolen Teifi has several community minibuses available from 14 to 17 seats including the driver), and all are wheelchair accessible. You will need a MiDAS certificated driver- sometimes we can put you in touch with one, or we can train your drivers for you.We have a fleet of eight accessible buses and three accessible cars of which one is an MPV.

In August 2014, Llandysul a Phont Tyweli Ymlaen Cyf were secured £245,644 of funding from the Big Lottery, People and Places grant funding to deliver a project that provides two fully accessible minibuses, which are based in Carmarthen and Llanelli.

The minibuses are available to groups / organisations to provide access to essential community services, which promote community activity, social inclusion, community cohesion, regeneration, rural health, well-being, and recovery from mental health problems.

 

About our buses: -

  • The minibuses are Peugeot Boxers, 14 & 17 seat, fully accessible with passenger lift, with provision for up to two wheelchair passengers.

  • The minibuses are run under a Section 19 permits, (this is a regulation permit provided by the Traffic Commissioners) seen as good practice by CTA UK.

  • The minibuses can be driven without the driving licence D1 entitlement as the vehicles when fully laden will be under 3.5 tons. This allows individuals over the age of 25 with two years driving experience to drive the vehicles (as long as they are not paid).

  • All drivers need to have gone through MiDAS training before they can drive the bus.
