WAVeSS (Wiltshire All Vehicle Sharing Scheme)

The Wiltshire All Vehicle Sharing Scheme (or WAVeSS for short) is a Wiltshire-based scheme which acts as a ‘go between’ connecting local community organisations that own passenger carrying vehicles with local groups needing affordable transport by brokering a virtual ‘pool’ of community owned vehicles.

WAVeSS is designed simply to give community-based organisations the chance to lend or borrow vehicles that are not being used all of the time.

Based on a similar established project in Gloucestershire, the main focus of the scheme is on sharing minibuses although it is envisaged that other passenger vehicles owned by community groups will be incorporated into the scheme as it develops.

The scheme works by taking care of all the business of making vehicles available to the community (such as legal issues, vehicle bookings and driver arrangements) before passing a fee to vehicle lenders after each journey which can be put towards vehicle running and replacement costs.

There are also robust policies in place to ensure that vehicles made available through the scheme are used responsibly and considerately.

Charges for WAVeSS vehicles are set by WAVeSS vehicle lenders. Please enquire to the scheme for details.
