MyBus is a new community transport group set up to provide a range of affordable, reliable, accessible transport services to groups and individuals unable to access suitable public transport.
It is an independent company limited by guarantee; what this means, is that there are no share holders, and any surpluses are re-invested into the company for the benefit of the local community. Although this company is new, their directors have a total of 27 years experience in community transport.
They believe that people come first, so they build their service around the needs of the people, and the group.
MyBus Community Transport is supported by Firstport, the social entrepreneurs fund that provides business support and advice and start-up awards to new and emerging social entrepreneurs across Scotland.
They now have five minibuses ranging from 8 to 16 seats (plus driver) all with access for people with mobility problems. All buses can be adapted to accommodate up to 4 wheelchair passengers and their drivers are MiDAS (minibus Driver Awareness Scheme) trained; a nationally recognised training standard for minibus drivers organised by the Community Transport Association U.K. They can provide an escort if you or your group need assistance.
Where they are
We are based in Leven and provide transport in Central, East and North East Fife, although we will travel to wherever you want to go.
Although MyBus receives no core funding, they were fortunate enough to have received funding from the Social Entrepreneurs Fund put forward by the Scottish Government and distributed by social entrepreneur advice organization, Firstport.
Who can use community transport?
Lots of groups need transport - Pensioners' clubs, playgroups, youth clubs, all can use their transport. Unfortunately, their vehicles are not available for private hire or for commercial purposes.
Here are a few examples of people who can use their services:
• You or your members if you have a mobility problem
• Community groups
• Voluntary Groups
• Pupils or students of any school, college, university or other educational establishment
