Merry Christmas, Manchester

6 months ago Tue 14th Dec 2021


Manchester has come together to write some very special Christmas messages for bus drivers and transport workers across the city.  

The festive messages, written by the people of Manchester as they shopped and enjoyed the Christmas markets, have been placed on the giant Christmas tree at our Queens Road depot as a surprise for our colleagues.

Nigel Featham, our Managing Director, explains: “Buses are at the heart of city life and that means our city’s bus drivers are too. We know how much our colleagues, and all bus workers across Manchester, are appreciated by customers, and this is one way to help share some festive joy straight from all the great people they meet day in day out.”

Since we started operating in the city two and a half years ago, we've marked Christmas time with a special festive video message for drivers, and for the city too. This one is particularly poignant due to the difficulties key workers have faced over the past few years with the challenges of Covid and now, national staff shortages.
