Barbara Bus Fund User Policy

As a non-fee charging charity, the BBF is under no obligation to provide our free service to people who (despite reminders) continue to disregard the basic principles of the BBF.

• The main principles are summarised as:
• Only using the vehicles for the transportation of wheel chair users
• Only using the vehicles for the journeys agreed at the time of booking
• Abide by the Highway Code in relation to driving
• Abide by any local regulations and signage in relation to parking
• Treat the vehicles as if they were your own and avoid any vehicle damage
• In the case of any accident or incident involving a BBF vehicle, ensure it is reported to the office as soon as possible with full details
• Ensure vehicles are only used for the agreed period with timely collection and return
• Ensure vehicles are returned with a full tank of diesel
• Treat the staff at the BBF with courtesy and respect

If there are occurrences of users not following these basic principles, these will be reported to the BBF Trustees. They will consider what action should be taken, ranging from monitoring repeat non-compliance, warnings to specific users to ultimately deciding that users will not be granted access to the vehicles.

These principles ensure that the BBF continues to provide a fair service whilst upholding its reputation with other users and the communities in which it operates, as well as maintaining the standards and ethos set when it was founded.
