Welcome to the Disley Community Bus Scheme
The Disley Community Bus Scheme is run by Disley Parish Council and operates as a not-for-profit community transport scheme. In 2018 a brand new 15-seater minibus was purchased with funding from Disley Parish Council, the National Lottery, Poynton Area Community Partnership, Disley & Newtown Good Neighbours, Cuppa an’ a Chat and many personal donations.
The minibus is driven by a team of wonderful volunteer drivers who have all completed a minibus driving awareness course.
The bus has a rear wheelchair lift and can safely accomodate wheelchair users.
