  17. Community bus operators warn new driver qualifications could affect services

    Bus stop

    Community transport groups in Somerset say any changes requiring them to work under new, expensive licences could be "devastating" for their services.

    It comes after the Department for Transport sent a letter to all operators across the country, saying it is looking into whether some groups will have to make sure their drivers have professional qualifications.

    Brian Worrell from Minehead-based Accessible Transport West Somerset said it could end up costing the organisation a lot more - which would then have to be passed on its customers - particularly affecting those in isolated areas.

    A Department for Transport spokesman said it has to make the changes because of EU law, and a consultation will be held later this year to work out which groups will be affected.
