Boness and Area Community Bus Association SCIO
Registered charity number: SC047023
Bo’ness and Area Community Bus Association is a registered charity which runs a not for profit minibus service from Bo’ness to Edinburgh via Blackness. Our membership is free to anyone over sixteen who lives in the Bo’ness Blackness area. Our organisation is managed by a small group of voluntary trustees, who along with our staff of two drivers, sustain our minibus service.
Because we are all users, customer service definitely comes first. We aim to provide clean comfortable minibuses, and the highest standard of customer care. We currently lease two Ford Trend seventeen seater minibuses, which operate between Bo’ness and Edinburgh under a section 22 permit from the Transport Commissioner. The buses operate on a scheduled service recognised by Transport Scotland, and qualify for Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG) and the Concessionary Fares scheme for Aged and Disability card holders.
Our fare structure is designed to be competitive with fares being equal or less than the alternative route via Linlithgow. We also have the option of operating ‘members only’ services under a section 19 permit, which does not qualify for any of the concessions or Grants mentioned above and would have to be run only when full costs are met by the hirer.Our services are fully covered by Employers & Public liability insurance, breakdown cover, regular inspections and maintenance.We wish all our customers an enjoyable, safe journey.
