Transport17 Ltd

Totley, Sheffield S17

 

We have a small office base on Baslow Road in Totley, south west Sheffield, for our paid full-time project manager and part-time administrator. The volunteer drivers and assistants meet here before they go out on the buses sometimes have lunch here before the return journey. The Catholic Church kindly allow Transport 17 to park their minibuses in their car park during the week and the Cross Scythes Hotel accommodate them at the weekend.

Michael Finn

Mike has been the project manager at Transport 17 since 1990. He oversees all the logistics of the three minibuses being in the right place at the right time with a driver and passenger assistant on board. He often drives the buses himself and keeps on top of their maintenance.

John Savournin

John has been the administrator for Transport 17 since 1999. He keeps the records of all the bus journeys and passenger numbers and is responsible for the financial administration of Transport 17. He is a passenger assistant on the buses when required.

Transport 17 drivers

There are currently 7 volunteer drivers for Transport 17. They all have their MIDAS certificate (Minibus Driver Awareness Scheme), which needs updating every five years. They drive a minibus between one and three days a week, normally doing the same pick up and dropp off so that they get to know the route, the passengers and the lunch club volunteers. They take holidays throughout the year and cover for each other when appointments and other commitments crop up. Those that live outside the S17 area claim their travel expenses back from Transport 17.

More drivers would really help! If you’re interested in driving a minibus for Transport 17, please fill out a form and pop in for a chat Driver Application
