Harrogate bus a better choice

MYSTERY travellers helped a Harrogate bus company to scoop a prestigious national award for their innovations on a popular route.

Transdev were named winners of the making buses a better choice award at the UK Bus Awards for the 36 route between Leeds, Harrogate and Ripon.

Beating off stiff competition for the title, which recognises projects that add value to users and non-users, Transdev were chosen after mystery travellers visited each short-listed entrant and were impressed by the 36’s new features, including WiFi, single leather seats and energy saving technological advancements.
