Blackburn bus depot named among the nation's finest

8 November 2018

They’re the team who keep the wheels turning at Blackburn’s biggest bus operator – and now they’ve been named among the best in Britain.

The Blackburn Bus Company’s engineering team in Intack has been shortlisted for the coveted title of Top National Bus Depot in the UK Bus Awards.

It’s the first time the Blackburn team has made it to the finals of the Awards, which are regarded as the ‘Oscars’ of the UK bus industry – and now they’re eagerly anticipating the big awards night in London on 20 November.

The Blackburn Bus Company’s General Manager, Shaun Walmsley said: “I’m absolutely delighted by this nomination for our hard-working team in Blackburn. Everyone at our Intack depot is 100 per cent dedicated to delivering an amazing service for our customers every day, and I’m thrilled to see them receiving recognition at a national level.

“Many of our routes in Blackburn have benefited from new and revitalised buses and our customers regularly tell us how important a reliable service is to them. That’s why the work our engineering and support teams do behind the scenes is so important to us – we couldn’t deliver for our customers seven days a week without them.

“There are hundreds of bus companies and depots across Britain who aspire to be among the nation’s finest. Our Blackburn depot team can be justly proud of their achievement in ranking among the UK’s very best, and we’re all very much looking forward to the final awards night next month.”
