Thank you very much Steve and Chris.
What a fantastic way to leave Primary School and what a fantastic bus!
— from all the year 6 leavers at River Primary School
We hired Steve and his lovely bus for our work Summer Fete last week. I cannot fault it - the bus was lovely, Steve and his Conductor were very friendly and could not have provided a better service. Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic day! The bus really made it unique and was perfect for transporting our wedding guests!
