A new Ford Transit for Wivey Link

Wivey Link has just taken delivery of a brand new Ford Transit Custom to replace one of the aging Citroen Dispatch vehicles. The Deputy Lord Lieutenant for Somerset, Mr David Wood, came to the Square, Wiveliscombe on the 16th April to officially launch the vehicle. A large number of our passengers, drivers, office volunteers and Directors were invited to the launch which was preceeded by lunch in the Community Office.


Seen here are some photos of the launch.


This new vehicle was converted to our own specification with wheelchair accessibility, air suspension for lowering the chassis, an easy access pop-out step for rear passengers and eventually a special 'turny' seat for passengers which will lift them into the vehicle front of the vehicle. This has still to be installed when it arrives from the U.S.A. The conversion has been undertaken by Courtside Conversions Ltd of Tiverton.
