With this larger fleet the organisation is able to meet a wide variety of transport needs,
undertaking regular work for Somerset County Council in the use of Social Care and
Special Needs Education Transport. Similarly on behalf of Somerset County Council the
business is now operating a service known as Mendip Slinky using two buses. One bus operates
in the Frome and Shepton Mallet areas and the other, based in Wells, covers the area of
Wells, Glastonbury, and Street. This service is provided by two wheelchair
accessible mini buses and is available to all registered users. (For fuller details please
click on our Mendip Slinky page).
A similar service known as Sedgemoor Slinky is also provided, again on behalf of Somerset
County Council in the Sedgemoor District Council area and again two vehicles cover the
whole of the area. One covers the north of the region, the other covers the south.
This service provides transport to all registered users. (For fuller details please

Following the Department of Transport Minibus Fund which was launched in 2015 we acquired two additional vehicles to our fleet.
These vehicles were to be made available to combat social isolation to individuals & Community Groups following a reduction in service
buses to villages in both the Sedgemoor and Mendip Areas.
After much discussion with Parish and Town Councils it is pleasing to say that currently both vehicles are being used in supporting
Route 601 Frome villages and Route 67 Wedmore to Wells.
In addition to the above, the business is able to provide transport to a wide variety of
groups, societies, and clubs, normally within the Mendip and Sedgemoor areas, and tends to revolve around the
elderly, infirm, or youth groups.
In our early years it became apparent that regular requests were being made to provide a service
for transportation to medical appointments. The business responded to these requests and has
now built a Hospital Car Service operated purely by volunteer drivers. This is available
to registered users for the purpose of attending medical and Hospital appointments
outside of the Mendip and Sedgemoor areas.
The Glastonbury Tor Community Bus is a regulated bus route (No 196) also operated by the business
providing a necessary bus link between Glastonbury town centre and the Tor.
This service normally operates 1st April - 30th September each year.
