UK Bus Awards entries sought

The 2013 UK Bus Awards contest is now officially under way. Entries are invited to compete for 21 awards covering the full range of skills required to plan, promote and deliver high quality bus services. The closing date is 7 June, with judging taking place in July and August. The awards ceremony is to take place at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 19 November.

UK Bus Awards Chairman, John Owen, said, ‘We are delighted to be entering the 18th year for the awards. In that time we have seen impressive change within the industry, with major innovation and real passion driving operating standards and marketing initiatives to new heights. The increasing quality of entries over recent years has made judging a real challenge, but it’s one we relish because it is all contributing to making using the bus a much more viable alternative to using a car.’
