THE team at local bus company, Arriva North West, have cause for celebration this week after it was announced that they had reached the final of the prestigious UK Bus Awards 2013.

The company's Southport based operation has been shortlisted for the Top National Bus Depot of the Year award, having been praised by judges for its impeccable focus on service delivery.

In the finalists' overview, the depot was applauded for its attention to detail with its service provisions, with particular commendation for the comprehensive monthly 'ride around' undertaken by managers, and the work of the 'fleet champions' who ensure that the buses look well cared for.

Howard Farrall, area managing director Arriva Merseyside, commented:- "As one of 6 depots that make up Arriva Merseyside, Southport benefits from a unique sunny seaside outlook, impressive contract retention, and investment in fleet; all of which has resulted in incredible customer and employee satisfaction survey results. We are extremely proud of the team for making it to the final of these coveted awards and wish them all the best in the overall competition."

The shortlist contains more than 100 people, projects and organisations from around the country, selected by the judges from over 250 nominations to go forward to the final stages, including mystery traveller checks.   The winners will be announced on 19 November 2013.
