Abellio London Bus wins again!

Here at Abellio London Bus, we just cannot stop winning! Following on from our success at the London Transport Awards in March, we have once again come out on top, this time at the London Bus Awards. The awards were held in the Mayor’s Living Room set against the stunning backdrop of Tower Bridge and London’s banking district, the London Bus Awards 2019 brought together London’s bus operators to celebrate the successes of both the teams and the individuals who keep our bus network moving. The awards themselves were presented by Claire Mann, Director of Bus Operations for TfL, Heidi Alexander, Deputy Mayor of London for Transport and Gareth Powell, Managing Director of Surface Transport.

Going into the awards, we were shortlisted for three awards: Denis McMahon for the Award for Outstanding Customer Service, Nigel Nmezu for the Award for Outstanding Newcomer and John Coles for the Award for Actions Above and Beyond the Call of Duty. Whilst John and Nigel were unfortunately unsuccessful, they were both applauded for their work and contribution to both Abellio London, TfL and our customers. However, we are delighted to announce that Denis McMahon won his category and it is thoroughly deserved! Denis has received nine customer commendations already this year, with some of our customers describing him as “An amazing driver! So welcoming and friendly.” and “So friendly and kind and courteous”. In Denis’ own words he would tell you that he is “living the dream” and that it’s “all about the people”, which echoes everything that we are about here at Abellio London Bus.
