It is a membership based scheme that has been designed to enhance minibus driving standards and promote the safer operation of minibuses, through the Midas minibus driver training which is managed by the Community Transport Association.

The MiDAS minibus driver training is applicable to any organisation operating or using minibuses, especially organisations, which range from small voluntary organisations operating one vehicle, to local authorities operating large fleets of minibuses as well as schools, colleges and universities.
