This month marked the inaugural North England Transport awards with First bus winning several awards throughout the night with assistance from Cordant Cleaning as the cleaning provider for 12 sites throughout Scotland & Yorkshire.
First Halifax, a Cordant Cleaning client site, came a close second in a highly competitive category seeing off competition across Greater Manchester, Sheffield and Leeds.
The judges had been impressed by what they experienced from First Halifax and were particularly impressed with how the service continues to improve.
Held at the Midland Hotel in Manchester, and hosted by BBC Breakfast’s Steph McGovern, the awards attracted over 350 senior transport professionals to celebrate the first year of the event. John Cridland CBE, chair of Transport for North, gave the keynote speech.
Dave Alexander, Divisional Director for First Bus, said: “To have achieved such high levels of success, in Manchester, York and Halifax, demonstrates the hard work and commitment of colleagues within our businesses. This recognition is richly deserved.
