Keeping Communities Inclusive
We’re thrilled to be working with Felixstowe Area Community Transport Service again (FACTS).
This time with the provision of a 17 seat
Fiat Ducato based mini bus. We converted the Fiat Ducato
to accommodate a maximum of 4 wheelchairs.
For over 30 years FACTS have provided vital transport links for individuals in their community with physical, cognitive or sensory impairments which limit or restrict their ability to use public transport.
Mini Bus World are proud of every Mini Bus we produce, but we do take that additional level of satisfaction when we know that our vehicle will be used to assist communities in being inclusive. This is certainly the case with FACTS
new community transport.
With the passengers needs at the heart of this Mini Bus, an underfloor wheelchair lift is fitted for ease of regular on/off of wheelchair using commuters. There are other lift types available but through understanding FACTS specific needs the underfloor lift
offered the best solution in terms of weight, passenger capacity and ease of operator use.
We like to view each customer as a long-term partner. We were grateful for the loyalty FACTS showed by approaching Mini Bus World first when considering adding another Mini Bus to their fleet. We also understood that having continued operating through the Pandemic that it had put financial restraints on their budget. These restrictions made what was available to what was affordable limited and potentially jeopardised FACTS purchase. Mini Bus World view Community Transport as essential to enable vulnerable individuals to have inclusive, active lives. We were able to find a financial solution that brought FACTS ideal minibus inside of their target budget.
Given the area of operation our expert sales team provided guidance towards a ULEZ compliant vehicle
. As more UK cities introduce Low Emission Zones, it’s important that charities and non-for-profits are able to direct funds to front line resources as opposed to penalties for non-compliant minibuses. This is why we ensure their Fiat Ducato 17 seater Mini Bus is Euro 6 compliant
Mini Bus World are a premier UK manufacturer of Mini Buses. When considering your next vehicle our team will be happy to guide you to the most suitable solution.
