Alford-based Hunts Coach Travel has been awarded the six star award in the BUSK (belt up school kids) Benchmark scheme. Background checks are carried out on companies given star ratings to ensure safety regulation compliance.
In addition, one of the operator’s senior drivers, Paul Radford, has been awarded the highest accolade from GreenRoad, giving him the ‘Elite Driver Status’.
Paul, who has worked for Hunts for five years, is now one of only 5% of professional drivers in the UK to be awarded the honour.
Owner Michael Hunt said: “We are very proud of Paul and his achievement. This award helps underline how important we take safety at Hunts.”
