Lerryn Area Minibus


Message from LAMA December 2021

We’ve recently renewed our insurance for the minibus and needed to make some changes to some of our procedures and publicity
to comply with The Transport Act of 1985.

This means we are no longer producing ‘Timetables’ for public  display; instead these will be delivered individually to our ‘Registered
Passengers'. Please see more details on our poster below.
