Via minibus, the minibus hire with driver company: A message from our MD

As the oldest member of the Via Minibus family, I have been here from the start in 1998, it's been a fabulous 20 + years. Starting as Vikingston Coaches, we eventually became the Limited company we are today. Having started off with just one vehicle, we now have thirteen 16 passenger minibuses, the majority being less than a year old. We also provide transportation for a number of local independent schools, as well as taking people all over England and Wales.

Our first driver was Erik, he stayed with us for 15 years until he retired, since then we have have been fortunate to have employed drivers who have stayed with us for the long term. In what is a traditionally transient industry, no one (who has passed their trial period) has left us for another company, we treat all of our staff very well, which leads to happy drivers and, as our reviews prove, happy passengers! We continue to strive to provide the best possible levels of service, our aim is to continue expand, whilst ensuring our very high standards do not drop.

If you have travelled with us and would like to send me a direct message, you can reach me by emailing jpp@viaminibus.co.uk. I hope to hear good things, however, if you have any issues at all, please also let me know. After all, we can't improve or fix things if we don't know about them.

Finally, please be assured that we have a strict cleaning process in place for all of our vehicles. This is especially important the current Covid 19 situation, you have my assurance that as well as following all current government guidelines, that all of our Minibuses are thoroughly cleaned and disinfected after every journey.

Best wishes and keep safe,

JP
