Welcome to our web-site. By working together, sharing ideas and knowledge, all in our community can contribute to the improvement of transport provision for Inverness, Nairn, and surrounding rural communities.
In order to meet the demand for Driver, Passenger Assistant, and D1 training, the forum have developed a training unit unique in the Highlands in that it delivers the full range of MIDAS courses, Drivers CPC, and D1 & E, Minibus and Trailer Training.

Geographically and historically transport has always been important to the Highlands, but in todays world of global business and growing awareness of social issues, there has never been greater emphasis on transport provision.

This forum intends to address these issues and open dialogue with all relevant organisations and individuals who can contribute to the betterment of our communities through improved transport.

It is intended that this site is used to inform interested parties on forthcoming events, issues of the day, transport news and training events. We have included a message board to allow discussion on a variety of topics. See contact us.
