BURT, or Bromsgrove Urban & Rural Transport, has been running since 2009. The bus helps vulnerable residents of Bromsgrove District who are unable to make essential journeys by conventional transport, either because of personal mobility/disability difficulties or because of the non availability of a suitable service. The bus is adapted for wheelchair users.

The service is run by Bromsgrove and Redditch Network, and we are in need of Minibus Drivers to help those most in need. Full training provided. Find the opportunity on the BURT website at:
