This brief article describes the introduction of a post-bus service in a rural area around dorking. Details of the appearance and special fittings of the van are presented and the author notes what sort of passengers are most common. The service operates three return journeys on weekdays and one on Saturdays. The advantages of the service are spelt out: it is not in competition with stage services, it is a personal and friendly service, and the minibus stops on demand. The service is flexible and the post-bus guarantees not to leave people stranded. Both shoppers and visitors to both friends and the countryside can take advantage of the service. /TRRL/
