Mini Bus Drivers

As member of the Community Transport Association, our mini bus transport service is a scheme to keep the voluntary organisations, sports clubs, community or faith groups, schools and charities of the Tees Valley on the Move. #driveforwardteesvalley

Meet new people, learn new skills, gain confidence, gain work experience, give something back or test the water!

People volunteer for so many different reasons and volunteers can do almost anything! Volunteers make a vital contribution to all aspects of community life and providing affordable, accessible transport for community groups is vital.

Our organisation relies heavily on volunteers. We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds who are interested in volunteering to join our our team. 

Our two 16-seat fully wheelchair accessible minibuses require volunteer drivers for as little as a few hours or for as long as a weekend.
