This is the section of the web site which provides details of the results of the competitions.
We have summaries of all the results going back to the very first year in 1996. More detailed information, including illustrations and the judges' verdicts, is available for the competitions from 2007 onwards.
You can navigate the results in two ways:

- By award type, by clicking the links on the page below.

These categories include awards which recognise specific skills in developing schemes, projects or services. This includes Marketing, Innovation, Integration and special awards for rural services and for winning new customers. Awards for bus infrastructure and the most bus-friendly local authority are also included.
Over the years, the awards in these categories have come to be regarded as the "grand prix" of the scheme, reflecting all-round excellence in the operation of scheduled bus services. In 2005 and 2006, the award was sub-divided into two categories, but this was revised in 2007 to three, taking account of fleet size and operating territory. We have also expanded to include awards for Express Operation and for the Top National Bus Depot.
The results of categories which recognise excellence amongst staff "at the sharp end", delivering service to customers.
Awards run in conjunction with Transport for London for bus garages and frontline staff running bus services in the capital.

Occasionally, the UK Bus Awards Management Committee decides to make special awards to recognise and reward exceptional actions or events that occur during the year. The first of these was for the transport arrangements for the Commonwealth Games in Manchester in 2002. You can read about these awards here.
