I fear that Howard Piltz (You Write last month) has little understanding of the realities of bus operation in rural areas. As a volunteer driver for a Section 22 operator with six buses (mostly low-floor), I would say that our safety record is comparable with commercial operators, with whom we enjoy good relations. All our drivers have D1 licences as well as a Midas qualification and some also hold PCV/LGV licences.
