Dunfermline drivers on top form

25 Jun 2015

A Stagecoach bus driver from Dunfermline depot, Brian Mackie, has been awarded the 'Driver of the Year' award at this year's Bus Driver Of The Year competition within East Scotland.

Brian also won the local competition in 2008 and 2014, showing his consistently high standard of work since joining the company 12 years ago.

A number of Stagecoach East Scotland’s best drivers took part in the annual contest on Sunday 21st June. Proving their driving skills with a short drive around Kirkcaldy, the drivers then completed a special theory test, which included questions on road safety and hazard awareness. 

Second place went to Lee Holmes also from Dunfermline depot and Izzelle Shaw from Cowdenbeath depot took third place. 

Andrew Jarvis, Managing Director, Stagecoach East Scotland said: "I would like to congratulate Brian on his win as our best bus driver in East Scotland, it's a great achievement and to have won it for the second time just proves his commitment and skill. Many of our drivers across East Scotland consistently surpass our expectations in their day-to-day duties and it's great that their efforts can be rewarded."

Winner of £300 cash, Brian Mackie, and the runner-up, Lee Holmes, will now go on to compete in the National Driver of the Year finals, which will be held in Blackpool in September.
