Honiton mobility charity TRIP is hoping to take delivery of its first of two £50,000 minibuses by the end of the month.
Based in New Street, TRIP was awarded the new vehicle from a £25million fund launched by the Department for Transport.
The charity then learnt the fund had allocated it a second vehicle, which is currently in the process of being manufactured.
Neil Hurlock, office manager of TRIP, said the charity said the buses would preserve the future of Honiton’s Ring and Ride service ‘for the next 10 years’.
He added that TRIP was still desperate for more volunteer Ring and Ride drivers to help drive users on weekends and on several trips the charity organises.
