This size of minibus has been popular for many years with schools and colleges from all sectors of education. A football team plus a sub and the driver fit comfortably. Many of our independent school customers use 14/15 seat vehicles to complement larger vehicles to give themselves flexibility on certain trips and home to school runs. Some of our primary schools with limited space to park have favoured these slightly shorter vehicles too.
With the exception of the factory built Ford Transit (due to be re launched for 2019) the majority of the other 14/15 seat minibuses are at 3.5 tonne gross vehicle weight. This weight is one of the factors taken into consideration when deciding if a driver who does not hold D1 can drive a school minibus. As a result these are a favourite choice for schools with younger Non D1 holding drivers.
Things to consider
A popular and flexible choice for all school types.
