Group Transport MinibusesOur range of 16-seat standard and 14 or 11-seat fully wheelchair accessible minibuses can be booked with or without a driver for as little as a few hours or for as long as a few weeks and they can be used to travel anywhere within the UK.

New to Group Transport? How it works

Group Transport is like a club for not-for-profit organisations, societies, groups and clubs who join the scheme and use the minibuses. Under the terms of our license, the service can’t be used in relation to any profitable activity or as individual transport. Other than that, it works in a similar way to regular minibus hire - but at a lower cost as the service doesn't aim to make a profit from its members. A full guide to the Lascot Group Transport scheme can be found here.   

How much does it cost?

Details of all our charges can be found here.
