Shaftesbury & District Motor Services is ceasing trading.
As of February 2022, Shaftesbury & District is no longer offering bus hire for weddings or any other purposes.
We have ceased trading due to retirement.
Shaftesbury & District commenced in 1976, operating school transport contracts and a handful of bus services on local market days. It soon expanded into private coach hire and also offered classic buses for hire.
We grew to operate a fleet of buses and coaches, from small coaches to 72 seat double-deckers, on a range of services in Dorset and Wiltshire. Private hire has always been an important part of the business, which has included continental travel.
Before we ceased trading, we operated former London "classic" double deckers for special occasions including weddings. There was also a fifty year old 39 seat London "RF" single-decker. That bus was fully restored and could reach those places the double-deckers could not!
