£800k for minibuses

December 22 2018

COMMUNITY transport in South Gloucestershire will benefit from a record grant of £800,000.

The cash injection will help transform services provided by Kingswood Community Transport, Green Community Travel in Yate and Four Towns and Vale Link Transport.

The money, the largest single investment for South Gloucestershire’s community travel, was awarded to South Gloucestershire Council at a meeting of the West of England Joint Committee in Kingswood.

Old vehicles will be replaced by the new Euro 6 engined vehicles which will provide a range of benefits, from reducing harmful emissions, fuel consumption and ongoing maintenance costs to offering an enhanced experience for service users.
