The Portsmouth Scouts minibus will enable our groups to plan their program for the young people to be more adventurous and not stuck in the scout hut.


The Minibus is available for hire to non-profit making community and voluntary groups in Portsmouth and the surrounding area.

Our Minibus is a 17-seater GM Coachworks Minibus Lite which has fully adjustable seat belts to fit people of any age - from pre-school to adult. 

Our Minibus is also wheelchair accessible with four removable seats and disabled ramp which gives capacity for one wheelchair whilst still seating 12 passengers.

If you need transport for up to 16 people and have a driver, then we may have the solution for you…

Our vehicle is comprehensively insured for any Scout, Guide, community or educational group to use for social, domestic or pleasure purposes, with a driver over the age of 25 and under the age of 70. All you need is a driver that qualifies, complete the forms and it’s all yours for your event.

Choose from our extremely competitive session rates to fit your needs, just contact us if you need something a little different. We’ll do what we can to accommodate your booking.

The bus is fitted with a tow bar. We also have breakdown cover on the vehicle.
