As winners of the North West awards, Stagecoach Manchester will now be included on the shortlist for the CILT national awards, held in London in the autumn.

Stagecoach Manchester, which was also a finalist in the Best Practice in Passenger Transport category, was commended for its commitment to delivering greener local services, increasing its hybrid fleet to 128 vehicles and reducing waste at its depots. 

The award was judged by a panel of industry experts, chaired by Senior Traffic Commissioner, Beverley Bell.
