|The North West Community Bus Association's AGM last week was very well attended.|
Amongst the items discussed were the Association's gaining of a Section 22 permit which greatly expands the potential customer base and allows individuals as well as groups to hire the minibus, provided the driver has D1 entitlement and has successfully completed the MiDAS training course. It also allows drivers to be paid for their services.
Also as part of the Section 22 permit, the community bus will be operating a regular scheduled bus route between Kinlochbervie and Ullapool, twice a month. In addition to the extra income this may generate it is hoped that it will also make the Association more eligible for grant funding.
