Community Zero Emission Vehicle

The purpose of the community minibus is to promote health, mobility, education, and social inclusion. The minibus is therefore available to Sleat residents for uses which support these goals. Unfortunately, the vehicle cannot be used for private events or trips to the pub!

For each trip we try our best to get you a volunteer driver to help you get to your appointments, but you could take the vehicle yourself once recorded with us as a driver.

Scheduled Trips to Kyle

We are currently running scheduled trips to Kyle (volunteer drivers permitting) every Wednesday. This can be for shopping, meeting friends or simply for a day out.
 
The bus will leave the SCT offices at Armadale at 10am, and will collect (by arrangement) from places en route to Kyle. The bus will leave Kyle at 2pm to return to Armadale.
 
  • To book your place, please contact the Office on 01471 844 776 (leave a message if needed) or email office@sleat.org.uk.
If you could try and schedule your Kyle appointments to those journey dates, this will guarantee you will be able to be in Kyle. We remain subject to volunteer availability for any other times and cannot offer the same guarantee.

Use by Sleat-based groups

If your group would like to use the vehicle for something which supports our four goals of health, mobility, education, and social inclusion, we will be happy to lend it to you. You will need to provide a driver who must allow us to take a copy of their licence in advance. Everyone on the bus must be a resident of Sleat.

Charges

Trips within Skye and Kyle – £2 per person for a return trip

How to book

Whether you are needing a personal trip or booking for a small group outing, you will need to book each time. Please contact Sarah on sarah@sleat.org.uk or 844776 to make a booking. Sarah is in the office Monday-Friday each week. The more notice you give us the more likely we can fit you in!

Drivers Needed

We need more volunteer drivers! There is no obligation to do more than you want to – please get in touch for more info.
