We have a fantastic team of Volunteer Drivers who take patients to hospitals all over Wales...and as far afield as Birmingham, Manchester, Brostol & London.

Minibus Trips

As well as supporting our Dial A Ride schedule, our 16 seater minibus "Archie" takes members on many day trips throughout the year.

Popular destinations include Hereford, Aberaeron, Ebbw Vale, and Carmarthen to name but a few.  We have also started planning Cinema matinee trips - watch this space!

All passengers are picked up from home in the mornings, and returned safely to their doors once back in town.  It is an ideal way to get out for the day, meet up with friends and make new acquaintances in a safe and friendly environment.                                                        

Minibus Hire:

Our minibus "Archie" is available to hire to all non-profit making & voluntary organisations based in Rhayader & District.

A small membership fee and mileage cost enables groups to access any out-of-town destinations.  


Hirers are asked to provide their own MiDAS Minibus trained driver,  however we have a small pool of volunteer minibus drivers who may be available to help out!
