Matchday Travel

DfT Community Minibus Fund - New Minibus

Due to the unusual times we’re in, we’ve made a few changes to our rules and procedures surrounding minibus transport. Top priority is, of course, the safety of everyone.

Extra measures:
The minibus is cleaned before and after each use – especially those areas which receive the most regular contact. On trips, extra ventilation will be used – including the roof and side windows. The aisle seats and the middle seat next to the driver will be out of use, meaning a lower full capacity on trips. We have also invested in a contactless card reader.

We ask users to please:

  • Sit in the window seats and leave the aisle seats free unless with family/household members.
  • Be considerate to our drivers and other passengers.
  • Consider wearing face covering if possible, and arrive with cleaned hands.
  • Have contactless payment or the correct amount ready.
  • Adhere to Government guidance and Club Code of Conduct re covid precautions.

Minibus: covid seat distancing - leave aisle seats free

Away Trips: See side panel calendar

We’re always looking for volunteer drivers. If you’re happy to drive and meet our driver rules here then please book on as a driver on the Eventbrite booking page.

Booking terms

  • Non-Members pay a temp. assoc. member fee, only valid for the trip. No other rights.
  • Special offers (e.g. Early Bird etc) only apply to members – unless explicitly stated otherwise.
  • The suggested donation, which varies according to distance, goes towards fuel, overheads and running costs.
  • We’ll contact you by email/phone to confirm any changes to the planned trip.
  • If you cannot make it please let us know as soon as possible so we can cancel your booking and make it available to someone else. Un-notified no-shows are inconsiderate to others – sanctions/forfeits may be applied!
  • We can accommodate one wheelchair user – please call well in advance as we have to remove and store four seats – if not already booked.
  • The minibus will only call at pick-ups with bookings, so please book on – don’t just turn up and expect it to be there.

Passenger Rules

  • No Standing in the bus.
  • No Booze in the bus.
  • No Smoking or Vaping in the bus.
  • No Abuse**
  • No Violence**
  • No Flares or Fireworks**
  • Our Trust Rep’s decision is final.
  • If you break a rule you may be required to get off and make your own way without a refund.
  • If you don’t agree don’t book or get on.

**These rules apply for the whole trip, not just in the bus.

The minibus will be run in accordance with the law, permits and insurance restrictions. If in doubt contact us below or call 01926 671 412.
