Volunteer drivers

The Bourne Bus users local volunteer drivers and we would love it if you were willing and able to join our friendly team.

Our volunteer drivers take residents to the local places they want to get to

We have drivers from all over the Bourne area from Chidham and Hambrook to Southbourne, Nutbourne, Westbourne and Emsworth.

Bourne Community College return trips to Thorney Island Baker Barracks

Most of our volunteers drive the FREE bus two to four half days a month on a Tuesday, Thursday or Friday, but others offer their time for local social and leisure group hire the Bourne Bus team provides.

We warmly welcome new recruits to our growing community of volunteers driving the bus and have a quarterly drivers social get-together at a local pub too! Whilst most give their time for free, for hire deals for local groups we can pay drivers £10 an hour when driving.

We also provide you with FREE training to MIDAS certification level.
