IT'S a case of reaching for the stars and going for gold at Arriva North West this month, as the bus company starts its annual search for the drivers amongst its dedicated team who are the most committed to going above and beyond to you get you safely from A to B.

Arriva, which operates services across Southport, is giving its customers the chance to nominate one of their drivers for its nationwide:- 'Bus Champion' award. This accolade is designed to recognise drivers who make a difference to customers when they travel on Arriva buses, be it through their steadfast reliability or just by adding a little sparkle to their passengers' day. Whether it is their friendly manner, flawless driving or the fact they go above and beyond the call of duty, Arriva wants the people who know best, its customers, to nominate drivers that deserve to have their dutiful deeds acknowledged.

Derek Bowes, from Arriva North West said:- "We're big believers that through great endeavour you can achieve great reward; whether you're a supreme athlete, a corporate high flyer, or a bus driver on the road. We all have greatness within us and that is exactly what we want to showcase with this award. Our drivers are the heartbeat of our business; and they really do care about the customers they serve and communities they are part of. We are incredibly proud of how many of them consistently go that extra mile to ensure excellence on board our buses and want your help in celebrating these unsung champions."

The 'Bus Champion – Driver of the Year' title forms part of Arriva's annual 'Made A Difference' (M.A.D) Awards campaign, a national recognition programme which looks at all elements of the bus company, including:- engineering, depot management and back office functions.

The top regional drivers voted for by customers, will be celebrated during a glittering ceremony on 21 April 2016, where the overall national champion will be announced.
