Drivers of a community minibus are completing extra safety training.

East Beds Community Bus, which operates the Ivel Sprinter, is currently offering Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme 
(MiDAS) training to all its drivers

Training organiser Andy Buckley said: “We are operating a service to the public so training our drivers is important for passenger safety and also equipping our drivers with the knowledge to deal with situations that may arise out on the road. Undertaking the MiDAS training means we meet a nationally recognised standard for safer driving.”
