Search on for ‘most helpful’ bus drivers

Have your say

Nominations are being sought for Lothian Buses drivers who go the extra mile for passengers.

The company has teamed up with Edinburgh charity Ecas, which provides support to local people with disabilities, and South East Scotland Transport Partnership, to launch the Happy to Help awards.

George McKendrick, operations manager at Lothian Buses, said: “Since 2009 we have had a fully accessible fleet with all staff trained in disability awareness. The fantastic work of our bus drivers is often taken for granted and this is a great way of recognising the work they do.”

David Griffiths, chief executive of Ecas, added: “Ecas are delighted to sponsor the awards. We know that many drivers, and indeed fellow passengers, willingly help others and we want to recognise that. I look forward to hearing the many excellent examples that the public will send in.”
