The Jumbulance

A Jumbulance is a custom-built coach ambulance, built to exacting standards to ensure the comfort and safety of all passengers, particularly those with disabilities.

ACROSS took delivery of a new Jumbulance in early 2012. Costing £400,000, this latest addition to our fleet is dedicated to St Bernadette, and joined our 2007 vehicle dedicated to Pope John Paul II.
