Note re. Vehicle Maintenance
Public service vehicles are required to have regular preventative maintenance inspections, and inspections may result in unforeseen work needing to be carried out. The inspections and any resulting work unfortunately means that vehicles may be unavailable from time to time. Our aim at all times is to minimize the level of disruption to the service and any inconvenience to our patrons.
