Our story

In 2021 we’re celebrating too, as we mark our 25th anniversary as the leading bus industry awards scheme.

We have one simple mission, and it’s to champion bus by recognising, rewarding and inspiring all those remarkable people that work within it.

We’ve recognised over 450 top award winners over the years, and some 14,000 people have joined us at our ceremony events.

As a team we’re committed to promoting innovation, inclusion and diversity, always priding ourselves on our integrity and transparency with a highly-respected judging process.

Our Chair, Mark Yexley, former president of the Confederation of Passenger Transport and former Operations and Commercial Director for Arriva UK Bus, is dedicated to delivering a first -class scheme, which benefits the whole industry by motivating and inspiring the talent within it.

The scheme is operated and financed by an independent not-for-dividend company, The Bus Industry Awards Ltd, a subsidiary of Transport Events Group. The group also runs the UK Coach Awards. The UK Bus Awards Management Committee is made up of stakeholders from across the industry who help run and manage the scheme.
