Bo’ness Community Bus SCIO
Registered charity number: SC047023
The Bo’ness Community Bus is a registered charity, which runs ‘not-for-profit’ scheduled daily minibus services between Bo’ness and Edinburgh, Bo’ness-Blackness-Linlithgow. We also offer competitively priced private hires and contracted services.
Our organisation is managed by a small enthusiastic group of voluntary trustees, who along with our staff of five drivers, transport manager and operations manager, sustain our excellent minibus service.
We not only manage the services, but we are all users of them too, therefore we are very much aware that customer service definitely comes first.
We provide clean, comfortable minibuses along with the highest standard of customer care.
We currently lease two Ford Trend seventeen seater minibuses, own one Ford Trend 17 seater minibus and also own a WAV bus which has a lower floor and is capabale of carrying wheelchair users.
Our scheduled services operate under a Bus Services Operators Licence issued by the Transport Commissioner. They are also recognised by Transport Scotland and qualify for Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG) and the Concessionary Fares scheme for Aged and Disability card holders.
Our structure is designed to be competitive with fares are are comparable with our competitors.
We also run a private hire service which is open to anyone who wishes to organise bus services for any event, be that a trip of friends going to the theatre, a community group having a day out at one of the many local tourist attractions, or perhaps celebrating a wedding.
As we are also registered with Public Contracts Scotland and tender for Public Service Contracts.
Our services are all fully covered by Employers & Public liability insurance, breakdown cover and have regular inspections and maintenance.
All our drivers hold the Certificate of Professional Competence and are all CPC approved.
We look forward to welcoming you onboard.
