In November 2019 With a Local Bus Operator withdrawing there Wakefield - South Elmsall connecting Stockingate to South Elmsall & Hemsworth.

 

In January 2020 with the Local Bus Operator going into receivership we stepped in and saved there only service & took the 2 drivers on as well to keep them in a job, This service runs between Upton - Pontefract

 

As a community based firm we don’t like to see town’s and villages losing bus services to which communities rely on, so where possible we have extended our services though some of the areas that were losing their services. It maybe Not Ideal times for some where we have stepped in but as we keep stating we are a small family firm with Limited resources our buses and drivers are on the road working full shifts.

We Operate a Small Fleet of Mini Buses, Coaches & 1 P.S.V.A.R Coach

 

We Have 1 Minibus, 1 Midi Coach, 3 Coaches (1 is P.S.V.A.R. This means it is Wheelchair friendly & Destination Displays Fitted Available to Hire for Rail Replacement and Other Events)

 

In January 2020 we acquired our P.S.V.A.R Coach from a local operator who ceased trading.

 

We have recently acquired a coach from Moseley PCV who went into administration in August 2020 this is a Vanhool Astron T917 Tri Axle Coach this coach was originally a 48 Seater but due to Covid 19 Restrictions and to allow us to operate a few holidays we removed 8 Seats to allow some social distancing measures.

​Passenger numbers are important to us continuing to operate our services the decline in passengers are to blame for the cuts in your bus services. Please help us help you to maintain your bus services by using your bus services regular.
