The 2016 route one awards have sold out with just under a month to go until the winners are announced!

The awards are our way of extending support to the coach and bus industry and are specifically designed to reward the operator. Launched in 2005 and now in its 12th year, the routeONE Awards is firmly established as the number one event in the coach and bus industry calendar.

Among the 16 categories there are 10 for operators and five for people, while the Partnership of the Year recognises operators and local authorities (or others) who worked together to deliver high quality coach or bus services.

The finalists of the route one awards 2016 have been announced. The panel of five industry experts had the daunting task of refining another record breaking number of entries!



The winners will be announced on Wednesday 2nd November at the Hilton Metropole, Birmingham at what is set to be the industry event of the year. For more information click here.

This year we shall be raising money for Muscular Dystrophy UK


This charity is for the 70,000 people living with muscle-wasting conditions in the UK. They have since 1959 been raising awareness of these rare conditions, supporting people and families living with them and raising funds to invest in research for treatments and hopefully, eventually cures.


There are more than 60 known muscle-wasting conditions which, are thankfully very rare, affecting just over one in every 1,000 people. At present there is no cure or treatment strategy for the vast majority of these conditions.


For patients with Facioscapulohumeral Muscular Dystrophy (FSHD) this means they have a debilitating condition that slowly consumes skeletal muscle, robbing them of active, healthy, and independent years of their lives. In recent years scientists have reached a consensus on the root cause of FSHD and have identified molecular targets for intervening with the condition, so continued support for research is vital.
