CWC requires urgent replacement of its fleet
of 24 passenger carrying fleet vehicles operated by its Travel
Unit. The current fleet of 24 vehicles has gone beyond its life
expectancy and is in urgent need of replacement.
In addition to the immediate purchase requirement of 24 vehicles, a further 15 vehicles may be purchased in the future. These additional purchases will be dependent on the outcome of service reviews that are currently underway. CWC will advertise this additional requirement now so as not to have to undertake and repeat this procurement exercise should the additional vehicles be required and subject to capital budget funding be available.
The replacement vehicles are required to provide suitable assisted transport for passengers with special educational needs and disabilities, both children and adults.
1. Approved the award of the contract for the Supply of Wheelchair Accessible Minibuses to Treka Bus Ltd of Archer Road, Armytage Road Industrial Estate, Brighouse West Yorkshire HD6 1X for a one-off purchase of 24 vehicles with the option to purchase a further 15 vehicles subject to service requirements and available capital budgets.
