Judges face hard choices in record-breaking bus awards contest
Tuesday 29 July saw the start of the judging process for the 2014 UK Bus Awards, as the independent panels beging a series of meetings to compare and assess over 380 nominations - a new record in the 18 year history of the scheme.
"We're both surprised and delighted by the response to this year's call for nominations," said UK Bus Awards Chairman Tony Depledge. "Our front line staff categories have created a great response, and we're particularly pleased that over 220 members of the public took the trouble to nominate their favourite bus drivers for an award."
New video launched to promote the 2014 Awards
The short presentation runs for just over two minutes and uses a combination of video footage and still images to tell the story of how the awards recognise, reward and inspire - and how the scheme is looking for the people, projects and organisations that really deliver for their customers.
