Go-Ahead Group current and former staff were among the winners at this year’s prestigious Route One Operator Excellence Awards.
Steve Prewett of Go South Coast won the Bus Engineer of the Year award, with the judges citing his deep passion for the performance of the entire business, his pride in the presentation of the company’s buses and his focus on satisfying the customer.
Louisa Weeks, who until recently was Operations Director at Oxford Bus Company, won the Bus Manager of the Year award. The judges said Louisa is a “highly regarded senior transport professional who has enhanced an already well-earned reputation by taking forward a textbook example of partnership working with the local authority.”
Go North East was also successful, winning the Innovation of the Year award for the Key Lifestyle, a flexible transport package which combines bus, car and travel discounts. The judges commented that the package was “especially appropriate in challenging times…It builds on growing concerns about the cost of car ownership while providing an integrated solution that also saves passengers money.”
David Brown, Group Chief Executive of Go-Ahead said:“Many congratulations to Steve and Louisa who have been rightly recognised for their commitment in their respective fields. I am delighted that Go North East’s Lifestyle product was deemed a worthy winner too, with the company recognised for its innovation and its achievement in bringing together in one product a wider choice of transport options for passengers ”.
