Bus fanatic Birthday Boy Celebrates sixth birthday with Stagecoach East Midlands

09 Apr 2019

KubaA boy from Mansfield received the birthday present of his dream when he boarded his own personalised bus.


Bus-mad Kuba Jedrusiak-Murzyn was treated to a tour of the Mansfield bus depot, as well as a run through bus wash and a journey on a bus with his name displayed in the destination board.


The day was arranged after the six-year-old’s mum, Gosia contacted Stagecoach East Midlands to see if they could send some goodies to surprise her son with on his sixth birthday.


Stagecoach, who pride themselves on exceeding customer expectations wanted to do much more, so arranged an exciting day out for Kuba.


Gosia, Kuba’s mum said: ‘’Kuba has always loved buses and gets really excited whenever we travel on one or one passes by. I wanted to give him some bus related presents, so contacted Stagecoach to see what they could do. I was so surprised when they suggested a depot tour and the chance to go through a bus wash, it was more than I could have hoped for!’’


Matt Cranwell, Managing Director, Stagecoach East Midlands said: ‘’We were really pleased to receive a request from Kuba’s mum. We knew straight away we wanted to help and arranged a birthday party with a difference. It was a pleasure to show Kuba around the depot and we hope he will continue to be passionate about bus travel. A big happy birthday to Kuba from everyone at Stagecoach!’’


Kuba said: ‘’Getting to see behind the scenes at the bus depot was great and it was so cool to have my name on the front! Thank you to everyone at Stagecoach for the best birthday ever!’’
