Tower Transit joined the annual challenge in Blackpool to compete for the prestigious title of UK Bus Driver of the Year!

Sunday 4th September 2016 saw two of our finest drivers involved in a competition in Blackpool designed to test the best drivers from around the UK.

Ian Watts and Brian Harrison (pictured) took up the challenge and were judged on a number of different driving obstacles, a theory test and on road assessments. Although we didn’t take a trophy home this year we were delighted to be involved in this special 50th year competition.

Well done Ian and Brian we are very proud of you for representing us and we know you are keen to compete again!
