Metrobus’ Crawley depot took home the Top National Bus Depot title and bronze in the Top Shire Operator award at the UK Bus Awards in London in November.
Metrobus Crawley depot is in danger of becoming the Meryl Streep of the UK Bus Awards, having won the Top National Depot title in 2012, 2013 and 2014.
Martin said: “A big, personal thank-you for your very well-deserved wins at the UK Bus Awards. These are the result of superb team efforts and I couldn’t be prouder of every single one of you for the service you provide every day to your colleagues, customers and the community.
“You all deserve the accolades that these awards bring and should be very proud of yourselves for delivering such great results. I know how hard you have worked and it has really paid off.”
The judges were impressed with Crawley depot’s overall performance, from how the company looks after and rewards its employees through to its investment in depot facilities and increase community outreach.
Mark Yexley, Chairman of the UK Bus Awards, said: “Metrobus’ Crawley depot has an enviable reputation for quality, investment and customer service. It’s great to see innovations in new technology too. We would like to congratulate Crawley depot on its remarkable success. Well done from everyone at the UK Bus Awards.”
The 2018 silver award for Top National Depot went to Stagecoach East Scotland for its St Andrews’ depot, and bronze went to Go South Coast – Southern Vectis’ Newport, Isle of Wight depot
