Shapinsay Community Mini-Bus,
Dial a Bus Request Service,
The Community Mini-Bus is now “in service” for the benefit of all residents.
If you’d like transport to pick you up to come down to the village, to go to the shop, see the Nurse or Doctor, or for any other reason, you only have to ask!
Would you like to be taken to visit friends or relatives, or to go to a social event? We are happy to help you get out and about and take part in the life of the Community.
A return trip from even the very furthest parts of the island is only £3.50: other fares are £2.50 return and £1.50 return, depending on distance from Balfour Village. Single trips are fine, too, of course!
To request your journey, please call Alan on –
Please give us as much notice as possible, 24 hours if you can, to ensure we can “fit you in”.
The Mini-Bus is fully equipped to be user-friendly for those of us who are less agile, and can carry up to 4 wheel-chair users. Our drivers are all fully trained to MiDAS standard, the most popular certificate demanded by mini-bus operators, so we are competent and confident to help.
