The Royston & District Community Transport scheme is urgently seeking new drivers for its minibus fleet.

The scheme offers door-to-door transport for people living in Royston and the surrounding villages, who are unable to use conventional public transport and do not have the use of a car.

Volunteer drivers provide transport using their own cars and the scheme also operates wheelchair-accessible minibuses and multi-purpose vehicles.

RDCT’s manager David Wherrell said: “A number of our volunteer drivers have had to give up driving for a variety of reasons, and we desperately need to recruit replacements.

“Anyone who holds a clean driving licence, with category D1, can drive these vehicles, and full training will be given to MiDAS standard.
