Our team have plenty to say!

Our bus drivers and support team are a happy group! Listen to what they have to say about their working day and why they love being a bus driver.


I have autonomy in my day-to-day work. I’m independent. It’s just me on the bus looking after my passengers, getting people where they need to go.


I like being outdoors and I like being a driver coach.


I like being a regular friendly face for my passengers, as part of their daily routine, it’s very rewarding knowing that we play such vital role.


Ever since I became a bus driver, I have developed more confidence in myself.


I’m not stuck in the office in front of a screen. I’m out and about and the view from the office changes every day!
