ARRIVA - The ultimate knight on the buses

The ultimate knight on the buses

Arriva Yorkshire's annual MAD 'made a difference' awards take place in September and they need passengers to come forward and nominate bus drivers who go that extra mile.

The awards ceremony recognises employees across the business who have made outstanding achievements or shown exceptional dedication and commitment in ensuring top-class service delivery.

Nigel Featham, managing director for Arriva Yorkshire, said "The Ultimate Knight of the Road is the only award which is nominated by our passengers and this is what makes it so special. The MAD awards are an extremely important part of our business, it is a fabulous opportunity to reward those great efforts and achievements made throughout the year, the pride and dedication is outstanding."
