Drivers Thorney Island

Driver training

The Bourne Community Bus service now has eight MIDAS qualified volunteer drivers to help disabled and all other residents using the bus.

On 28th and 30th March STA Training took drivers from Nutbourne, Southbourne and Emsworth through their paces on a two day course, with half a day covering resident and disabled passenger needs and then on the road training driving sections of the Bourne Bus route.
