UK Bus Awards Finalists Announcement

UK Bus Awards Finalists Announcement

We had the pleasure of attending the UK Bus Awards Finalists Announcement which was held at the Wythall Transport Museum just outside Birmingham.

It was a great day with some fantastic weather and trips on heritage buses.  We had an amazing day and were left feeling on top of the world and really special! 

It’s particularly great to see that Abellio London & Surrey has had its best EVER result at the finalists announcement this year with FOUR people and ONE team making the shortlist!

Our finalists are…

TOP NATIONAL DRIVER OF THE YEAR

  • Denis McMahon – Byfleet Depot, Abellio Surrey

TOP LONDON BUS DRIVER

  • Richard Burton – Battersea Depot, Abellio London
  • Ezeta Coleman – Battersea Depot, Abellio London
  • Myat Han – Twickenham Depot, Abellio London

TOP LONDON BUS DEPOT

  • Twickenham Depot

I think you’ll agree that this is an absolutely fantastic achievement from all concerned!

The driver categories each have 8 finalists and the depot category has 5.  Our drivers have been recognised for their vast array of fantastic customer commendations, box 1 driving assessments and good mystery traveller scores.  Twickenham have been recognised for performing well in all key performance indicators – driving assessments, mystery traveller scores, mileage, route performance and more.

There are over 24,000 bus drivers in London and three of the final eight are now representing Abellio!  It’s also the first time that we’ve ever made the shortlist in the national driver competition so a massive well done to Denis, Richard, Ezeta and Myat!

In addition to this great success I’d like to say a big well done to everyone who was nominated as well!

The awards take place in London on 24 November 2015 and we hope you’ll join us in wishing all our finalists the very best of luck on the day!
