About us

 

Riverside Travel (Dorset) Limited is a family run business based in Blandford Forum, Dorset. Our fleet comprises of a variety of taxis & minibuses for hire with a driver, with seating capacity for up to 16 passengers. Our proffessional and friendly drivers will ensure that you have a safe and comfortable journey.

 

Since the company was formed in 1994, it has built a strong relationship with local schools, including Bryanston school, as well as the general public and continues to do so successfully. The comapny works closely with Dorset County Council, providing school transport on a daily basis for the special educational needs department. As well as the day to day school transport, we operate regular minibus services for Bryanston School staff and The Forum School staff, transporting them to and from work.

 

At the end of 2014, a new luxury Mercedes Sprinter minicoach was added to the fleet of minibuses and taxis to provide luxury group travel at a reasonable price, focusing on airport transfers due to the large luggage capacity. The vehicle has proved to be very popular with corporate customers and those who want more than just basic a to b transport, expressing their delight at the free wifi access.

 

We have a new wheelchair accessible minibus arriving in March 2017 with the capacity to carry up to 8 passengers & wheelchairs. This will be the first wheelchair accessible vehicle in our fleet and is an area of the company we hope to improve with plans to add more accessible vehicles later in the year. 

 

All of our taxis and minibuses are regularly tested and maintained to the highest standard to ensure safety and comfort.

 

Although, we are based in Blandford Forum, we serve surrounding towns and villages in Dorset such as Shaftesbury, Gillingham, Sturminster Newton and many more.
