Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Updated 30.03.2020

In light of recent Government guidance, Bennetts Coaches has taken the decision to close our depot to the general public at this time, however, we are continuing to operate our school services to ensure that children of ‘key workers’ are able to attend school where necessary. We will also be operating our school services over the Easter holidays, where schools have made provisions for this period.

We have taken additional measures to keep our customers safe at this time with an enhanced cleaning regime in place. All main touch points on the coaches are sanitised. This includes hand rails, grab rails, armrests, steering wheels, head rests, seatbelts, toilet doors, bell pushes, flooring etc. We are using anti-bacterial cleaners and disinfectant, as well as industrial hard surface cleaners. We are also using anti-bacterial sprays on soft surfaces. All staff have access to hand sanitiser, soap and water.

We have also reduced the seating capacity on all of our vehicles to help our customers maintain social distancing during travel.

Our telephone lines remain open at this time, however, we may not be able to answer your questions immediately, as our admin team will be working remotely until further notice. We would suggest that should you need to contact Bennetts Coaches, this should be done via email wherever possible.

Please be assured we are doing everything we possibly can as a company to keep our staff and customers safe, whilst continuing to operate our services where they are needed.

Stay safe during these very difficult times.

We are Bennetts Coaches

Bennetts Coaches is a privately owned family company who first took to the roads of Gloucestershire in 1962. Since this time we have built an enviable reputation amongst local operators for providing a reliable and efficient service to all our customers.

We currently operate a fleet of coaches and minibuses. Due to continued investment in the fleet, the average age of our vehicles is approximately four years old. These are all maintained on site, by our own IRTEC trained engineers, at our Head Office and Depot based in Eastern Avenue, Gloucester.

from our Customers

"I just wanted to say thank you very much for this and other excellent communication re: any school bus changes. Since swapping to your service, for the first time in 3.5 years, I now have confidence that the bus will turn up on time to pick my children up but if there is any issue, I will be notified.

Thank you very much to you and team."
"Hi, thanks to the admin staff and the driver for the great service over the weekend, we would highly recommend Bennetts to anyone looking for coach hire."
"“Just to say how brilliant the school bus service is!  It has revolutionised my life, but really I wanted to say how lovely the Bus driver is to the children!  Our girls were nervous about starting to get the bus, but he made them feel so welcome and looks after them all.  So very big thanks to him.”"
