Town’s bus depot up for award

Have your say

A bus company is hoping to pick up a top award after being shortlisted for the second year running.

Arriva North East and Go North East (GNE) have each been shortlisted in three categories in the UK Bus Awards, including the company’s Blyth depot who will again compete for the Top National Bus Depot award, which it came runner-up in 2013.

A record number of 96 finalists have been selected from more than 400 plus nominations across the country, and, following final judging and mystery traveller checks, the winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on November 18.

Tony Depledge OBE, chairman of the UK Bus Awards, said: “Yet again, this year’s entries embody the vibrant and creative spirit showcased by the UK Bus Awards Scheme and I’m delighted we have another year of strong competition.”
