Welcome to the Disley Community Bus Scheme

‘Dear Bus Users,

This update provides details of the current position regarding the Disley Community Bus. Disley Parish Council has recently re-applied for certification to allow the council to run the Community Bus Scheme. We have been notified that it may take as long as 10 weeks for the process to be completed. Therefore, the Council regretfully has no option but to temporarily suspend the Community Bus Scheme until this process is complete. We recognise that this will cause disappointment for users of the Scheme and apologise for any inconvenience caused. Should the certification be completed earlier, Disley Parish Council will then be able to re-instate use of the bus.

To minimise any disruption to future trips, the Council will endeavour to bring forward planned bus repairs and maintenance to take place during this time. The Parish Council would like to thank the Disley community in anticipation of their understanding in this matter and look forward to the continued success of the Scheme in the near future.’



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.
