About the Customer:
The bus is a 16 seater Mercedes operated by volunteers from the community and is based in Kempston. It is intended to provide a regular transport system for villages and hamlets which have no, or little, commercial service. The drivers give their time freely. There are services to Milton Keynes via Stewartby, to Milton Keynes via Bromham, from Aspley Guise to Bedford and from Bromham to Sainsburys at Kempston. There are other weekly runs from sheltered accommodation to stores in Bedford which run at other times, and it is possible others can be arranged.
Keith and the drivers at Road Runners were really pleased when we delivered the new Avantgarde, Keith was quoted as saying purchasing a mini coach from EVM was the best investment of time and money and would highly recommend EVM to anyone in the market for a new minibus
