CBW’s popular industry editor Meera Rambisoon will start a new role as campaigns manager at Greener Journeys in April. Backed by the so-called ‘Big Five’ operators, Greener Journeys is the UK bus and coach industry’s campaign to encourage people to switch from cars to buses and coaches.

Meera joined CBW in February 2010 as news reporter from Transit magazine. She became industry editor in February 2011.

CBW editor Gareth Evans said: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Meera. She’s been an enthusiastic and supportive team member, who brought a new dimension to the publication. Her contributions will be sorely missed. We all wish her well for the future.”

Meera said: “It has been a great pleasure meeting, working with, interviewing and learning from an inspiring range of people in a vibrant and diverse sector – a big thank you. Writing about the achievements and challenges of operators, PTEs and local authorities has been fascinating.

“I look forward to getting stuck into the challenge of encouraging more out of their cars and onto buses, a cause close to my heart, through helping to promote and develop Greener Journeys. I won’t be far away and will continue to work with many of you, so this is an au revoir, but not goodbye.”
