Introduction

Bedfordshire Rural Communities Charity (BRCC) requires support Drivers for its two community transport (‘dial-a-ride’) schemes.  These are ‘Door to Door’ (operating across Bedford Borough) and Greensand Country (covering the old Mid-Beds area of Central Bedfordshire).

The projects focus upon using vehicles with no more than 16 passenger seats to provide transport for those who have difficulties travelling by other means.
