A big thank you!
A big thank you to all the people took the trouble to visit the site and nominate their favourite bus driver in 2017: we're really grateful to you all!
The judging for this year's contest will take place in August, with mystery travelling checks on the selected finalists being organised during September and October. The finalists will be announced on 12 October, and the winner named on at the annual presentation ceremony in London on 21 November. We'll carry all the news about what's happened on our main web site.
Rewarding skill and professionalism
A warm welcome to this site, which is designed to help us in our quest to find Britain's top bus driver - the individual whose combination of technical skills, personality and professionalism makes them really stand out!
The bus industry carries over 5.1 billion passengers a year, and employs over 120,000 people - dedicated to providing customers with safe, comfortable, efficient and reliable journeys. People are working 24 hours a day, seven days a week to make this possible, in all weathers and conditions.
At the UK Bus Awards, we exist to recognise and reward the hard work of everybody involved, as well as hopefully to inspire others to follow the examples of best practice demonstrated by our winners and finalists.
Our prize for Top National Bus Driver brings together the verdict of passengers, employers and mystery travellers to select the individuals who really are performing at the top of their game for all their customers.
We were delighted that so many of you took advantage of this opportunity to tell us about great examples of customer service over the last couple of years.
