Who uses a 9 Seat Minibus?

9 Seat Minibus operators are a varied group

When you ask, “Who uses a 9 Seat Minibus” It's quite an open question. One response is, the 9 seat minibus or shuttle bus has a host of applications, across a variety of sectors.

It’s equally at home on the airport run, as it is providing daily transport for day care or social care service users.

We have found that you can categorise 9 seat Minibus operators into 4 primary categories:

  • Care & Social Care

  • Patient Transport

  • Private Hire

  • SEN – School

A 9 Seat Minibus doesn’t necessarily equal a small vehicle. It all depends on the needs of your passengers.

As expert Van Convertors we’ve offered 9 Seater Minibuses on:

  • Ford Transit Custom

  • Ford Tourneo Custom

  • Ford Transit

  • Vauxhall Movano

  • and more...

Which 9 Seater Minibus is right for me?

The Transit Custom and Tourneo are small compact minibuses, that can have a variety of seating arrangements including wheelchair accessibility. When operating in the care, social care and SEN sector, many opt for versatility in having tracked seating. Allowing for even more variation in passenger and cargo arrangements.

Airport Shuttle Minibus
Equally you can create an Airport Shuttle Bus, with comfortable passenger seating and ample space for all that Holiday luggage.

If it’s a compact, versatile 9 Seater you're looking for these are a great choice!

I need a larger 9 Seat Minibus!

Just as versatile are the slightly larger Ford Transit and Vauxhall Movano. The benefit of these as a 9 seater Minibus is certainly apparent should you require wheelchair access. Both the Transit and Movano can easily accommodate an onboard lift and still provide carriage for 9 passengers.

It’s something to consider. As a private hire or Taxi, you may have relatively few bookings that require a 9 seater minibus with onboard lift and the benefit of having an onboard lift fitted may not seem quite as necessary as having cargo space for your passengers bags and equipment.

However, if you’re in a social care, patient transport, care or SEN setting where you may more frequently require to on/off board a wheelchair passenger; an onboard lift is a great benefit. It allows easy access for the wheelchair user, is less labour intensive than a manual lift and over all will save time, effort and create a greater user experience.
