Bus driver on the right road

A BUS driver from Hucknall has scooped a £100 cash prize after scoring top marks in a mystery traveller test.

STEPHEN PURDY, who drives for Nottingham City Transport (NCT), was handed a Seasonal Driver Award after being secretly assessed on his customer service, driving standards and route knowledge.

Stephen and two other winners of the firm’s Seasonal Driver Award will go on to compete in the NCT Bus Driver Of The Year competition.

NCT commercial manager, David Astill, said: “To take part in the award, drivers need to have had 100% attendance, always turn up on time, have no live disciplinary awards or blameworthy accidents on file, and a clean driving licence, so our three winners were already demonstrating their high standards by qualifying.”
