Become a volunteer driver

Wanderbus and our community rely on having a strong team of dedicated volunteers to drive our minibus. We are always looking for more people to join our team and those interested in volunteering for Wanderbus will be warmly welcomed.

To be a driver you need:

  • hold a full UK driving licence (ideally clean but talk to us if you have any endorsements)
  • to have D1/D101 entitlement on your driving licence
  • to have held your licence for two years or more, and
  • be under 70 years old.


In return we offer:

  • flexible volunteering, with a level of commitment to suit your life-style
  • the opportunity to work with a not-for-profit organisation that offers a much-needed service
  • training to a nationally recognised standard
  • an opportunity to learn new skills
  • something worthwhile to do in your spare time
  • work in a friendly, supportive environment
  • the opportunity to meet new people, and make a positive difference to their lives.


As well as providing a public transport service for otherwise poorly served villages, you will be helping community groups across Bedfordshire to carry out their day to day activities. This will include shopping, bingo, lunches and many other social activities. Many of our member groups wouldn’t be able to operate without our central pool of volunteer drivers. You will also help individuals with mobility problems to access key facilities, and to attend appointments.

Trips and hours vary, so we’re bound to have opportunities available which would suit you. You may want to volunteer on a fixed day(s) each week or month, or you may be looking to drive on a much more regular basis. We provide services five days a week, plus occasional weekends, so we’re sure to be able to fit your availability around our requirements.
