Who is Swindon’s top bus driver?

03 Oct 2014

Swindon Travel Choices has joined forces with Stagecoach West and Thamesdown Transport to seek out Swindon’s top bus driver.  

As part of National Customer Service 2014, which takes place across the UK between the 6th and 12th October, Swindon Travel Choices are asking Swindon’s bus users to nominate the driver they feel has given great customer service. 

This may range from a cheerful welcome, good advice, skilful driving or an unexpected act of kindness- whatever it is, the aim is to find the best bus driver from Stagecoach and Thamesdown. The top bus drivers will be awarded with £100 High Street shopping vouchers.

To nominate a driver, go to and say who you would like to nominate (driver numbers appear on your bus ticket, or you can ask them for their name) and why they deserve to win.

A panel of judges will announce the winners on Monday 13th October 2014, and there are chocolatey rewards for everyone nominating a driver too.
