In this episode we hear how Little White Buses keep the dales alive, allowing access to local amenities for many locals who are dependent upon the volunteer drivers who help to keep these services running.
David Gathercole is currently a volunteer bus driver on the Swaledale Shuttle. He sets off weekly from Muker at 7.45 and picks up his bus in Reeth. Once he has checked it out and ensured that all is in order he sets off through the villages picking up passengers and transporting them throughout the dales.
David tells us how he became interested in volunteering and all about the process to becoming a volunteer bus driver in the dales.
