ARRIVA - Ultimate knight on the buses

Ultimate knight on the buses

Arriva North East needs your help, it is looking to crown one of its drivers with the grand title of Ultimate Knight of the Road.

Arriva North Easts annual MAD 'made a difference' awards take place in October 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 North East, 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."

The award is open to all Arriva North East bus drivers. All entries received will be put to the judging panel. To enter your driver, email the number on your bus ticket and the reason why you're nominating them to along with your details.
