What is a Mini Bus?

A Mini Bus is a passenger carrying vehicle that can transport more people than a car or minivan and less than a full-size bus. Seating capacity can range from 8 to 30 seats.

Being smaller than the full-size bus allows a more social atmosphere and is quicker transport through traffic.

Why would you hire a Mini Bus?

There are several reasons you would want to hire a Mini Bus. Convenience, comfort, atmosphere and time saving are the main benefits.


You don’t have to worry about finding and paying for parking. If you have a workgroup going to a function, you don’t need to worry about reimbursing each one for parking and petrol expenses. It also means that no one will be late or get lost on their way. This would be a cheaper cost per passenger. You also don’t need to worry about the safety of your staff if alcohol is served at the function.


You don’t need to worry about the stress of driving or finding a park. You can relax and enjoy the drive with your group. Plus our modern vehicles are well equipped and offer passengers a luxurious experience.


The group is all together, in the one vehicle, instead of distributed across multiple cars in isolated smaller groups. Therefore, in the case of a wine tour, everyone can enjoy the day together. As no one is driving, the entire group can join in conversations and the social interactions.

Because no-one in the group is driving, everyone can join in the conversations and social activities, including having a guilt-free drink.

Time Saving

Apart from the previously mentioned benefits such as simple parking and having everyone together so no-one is late or getting lost, a minibus can often being quicker through heavy traffic. SmartBus drivers are very knowledgeable about journey planning, so delays are avoided and the most comfortable routes are used.
