Welcome to our web site
The first step to celebrating outstanding talent and hard work of bus operators, local authorities and PTEs across the UK took place on 6 October – as the list of finalists was revealed in the 21st annual competition for the UK Bus Awards.
Over 100 industry representatives gathered at the Volvo Technical Centre in Warwick to celebrate being named as Finalists in this year’s competition. The 99 finalists were selected from more than 250 entries, across 20 categories. The event highlighted outstanding achievements, ground-breaking projects and outstanding examples of the service provided by the industry’s staff.
The UK Bus Awards is delighted to announce that former transport minister Norman Baker has accepted an invitation to present the prizes at this year's UK Bus Awards Presentation Ceremony on Wednesday 23 November.
As transport minister in the Coalition Government, Norman addressed three successive ceremonies in 2010, 2011 and 2012, earning a special award as a result. Following his departure from the House of Commons in last year's General Election, he has accepted the post of Chair of Bus Users UK.
The key dates for the 2016 awards scheme can be found here. The events are following a similar pattern to previous years, with nominations closing in early June. Judging will take place during late July and early August, the short-list announcement will be in early October, followed by the Presentation Ceremony in November - with a return to our spacious and exciting venue on London's South Bank.
