Top class Keighley schools team celebrate Amazing Awards victory


They're top of the class! Our colleagues in Keighley are celebrating awards success for their hard work to keep the wheels turning smoothly at the area's leading bus operator, The Keighley Bus Company.

Staff from seven Transdev bus companies across the North of England, including The Keighley Bus Company, voted for their favourites to make the shortlist for the company's third annual Amazing Awards.

And it was The Keighley Bus Company's Schools Team who made their way to the podium as winners of the company's Team of the Year, given each year to the group who've made the greatest positive difference for customers by working together to achieve shared success.

The Keighley team joined over 130 nominees and their partners from bus depots across Yorkshire and Lancashire at last night's prestigious awards presentation evening, held at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford.

Alex Hornby, CEO of parent company Transdev in Yorkshire and Lancashire, said: “The dedication of our Keighley winners truly is amazing, and they each fully deserve the recognition of friends and colleagues at our annual celebration of the people, pride and passion which thrives across our bus companies.

“2018 was a challenging year for our Keighley Schools Team – while providing a first-class service every day to school pupils across West Yorkshire, they've also carefully managed a move to a new depot and a change in fleet too. The seamless success of transition is due to their hard work and dedication, and it is very much appreciated.

“The high standards set by everyone on the shortlist for this year's Amazing Awards made choosing our seven winners a challenge, but one we as a team certainly enjoyed.”

The winners of the seven coveted Amazing Awards were each directly nominated by their own colleagues – and selected from a shortlist of the company's finest teams and individuals.

Alex Hornby said: “We believe in three things – employing people who are happy to work with us, serving people who are proud to be our customers, and creating a business which is innovative and successful. Those core values shine through in every one of our Amazing Awards winners – we're proud to celebrate their passion, performance and pride in delivering an outstanding service, every day.”
