School Minibus Overview


An increasing number of schools and colleges are leasing minibuses and other vehicles to help them deliver more valuable learning outcomes, transport more pupils into the school and safely support grounds and maintenance operations – all without committing to a major cash outlay.

Bridle Minibus Leasing offers you the widest choice of factory built and specially converted minibuses from all manufacturers whether you decide to lease or buy.

Whatever the make, all minibuses leased through Bridle Minibus comply with the latest European type approval rules for minibus construction and safety. We can supply in a variety of seating capacities from nine to seventeen. If you need a larger vehicle we also supply 22 seater coaches and full compliance support around using such vehicles too.

We also supply a full range of accessible vehicles fitted with fully approved wheelchair lifts and IVA and whole type approved compliant ramps.

Schools and colleges choosing to lease a minibus or purchase from Bridle Minibus will benefit from Bridle AfterCare. A package which includes regular on-site safety inspections as well as an MOT care package.
