Community or Private Hire

    On days when the bus is not being used for the scheduled or regular trips any member of the Community can hire it, with a volunteer driver, for private or group trips.  The cost is £1.21p per mile.  We charge for the total trip starting from and returning to our parking place at Oakford [EX16 9ET].  Minimum charge £25.   An additional £25 is charged when the bus will be out after 10.00 pm to reflect the 'antisocial hours' worked by the driver. 

    The bus has 16 passenger seats.

    All Community Trips and Private Hires are done to help support the regular routes run by the bus.  The Exe Valley Market Bus is run entirely by volunteers and all the drivers freely give their time, so we do ask hirers to keep as far as possible to the timings given at booking.  All money paid, including the £25 surcharge when applicable, is paid directly into the bus funds.
