A new operator, Northstar, has taken to the road in the North East.

With a vision to ‘lead the way in bespoke, high-quality transport solutions’ the company says it will embody four key values, namely people, performance, partnership and a proactive approach.

Northstar is wholly owned and managed by Sunderland-born Daniel Graham, who has worked in the industry for almost 10 years. Having previously worked for a major North East operator, Daniel says he has amassed a vast amount of experience in all aspects of operations, commercial and finance, enabling him to be equipped with the skills and expertise he needed to set up his own business.

Daniel said: “I’ve grown up using public transport to get around the North East, which is why I am passionate about delivering a high-quality transport operation myself. Northstar is a ‘people moving people’ company, and we want to keep the customer at the heart of everything we do.

“I’m looking forward to operating buses in our region’s fantastic towns and cities – I am proud to be giving back to the people and communities that we will serve.”
