The Friendly Bus
New Volunteer Drivers Needed
The community bus has vacancies for volunteer drivers for Scheduled Services on Tuesdays to Fridays and/or Private Hire as described above.
Driving the bus
- isn’t a big commitment. Many volunteers are only available occasionally but they still make a valuable contribution. Volunteers are only timetabled to drive at times when they make themselves available and rarely drive more than once a month.
- is very rewarding as it provides an important service to many local residents.
- is great fun as the bus is a friendly place where there is normally a happy buzz of conversation and plenty of laughs.
- isn’t difficult. All drivers are given free training by an approved Somerset CC trainer. This is provided before the volunteer starts driving and is repeated every 4 years.
Volunteers do need to have category D1 on their driving licence but this should be available on all licences gained before September 2008. They will also need to undergo a DBS check (Disclosure and Barring Service) which we will arrange at no cost to the volunteer.
