BATS is proud to be a member of the Community Transport Association UK (CTA UK) and the Federation of Small Businesses.

Group Transport

We offer standard and accessible minibus hire to voluntary and community groups in Bexley. Groups must be established as 'not for profit' organisations

For example:


Groups wishing to use our services must first become members of BATS.

Membership fee (unfunded group)£35.00
Membership fee (unfunded group)£70.00
Minimum charge£38.76
Mileage charge (first 25 miles)included in charge
Mileage charge (per mile thereafter)£1.10
Driver charge (per hour)£11.50

A small administration fee for volunteer is now going to be charged at £11.50. (This is for the administrative work put into finding a volunteer and also a small contribution to the volunteer expenses).

If the group are using their own driver or a paid driver, this fee will not be applied.

We are happy to provide quotes before travel.


From 1st March 2013 the £10 booking administration fee for member groups making a minibus booking will be dropped from the BATS group charging schedule. We hope this will make group minibus bookings more affordable for outings being planned in the Spring and Summer, particularly for the smaller unfunded community groups in Bexley.

Where at all possible we encourage our member groups to nominate 1-2 drivers who will train to drive for your organisation.

A small pool of volunteer drivers are available on request, but bookings cannot be guaranteed unless we have a voluntary driver willing to drive for your group.
