As a fairly young company (set up in 1999), konectbus has yet to hold any long service awards, but did recently show its appreciation to its longest serving driver Karen Prior, who has just completed 10 years service.

Julian Patterson, operations and commercial director, said “Karen has seen more changes here than most. We were a small independent operator when she joined us back in 2001. We now run 47 buses and are part of the Go- Ahead Group. Most of her time has been spent on service 4 between Swanton Morley, Dereham and Norwich and I’m sure she must see the route in her sleep sometimes!”

Karen, who has never had an accident in her 10 years at konectbus, was presented with Marks & Spencer vouchers and some additional holiday.
