As a result of a recent reorganisation within TfL, designed in part to make the organisation more efficient and streamlined, popular coach manager Darek Podwi?zka is to leave his role at the Coach and Licensing unit on April 2.

“After eight years as TfL’s coach manger, I will be taking up an exciting new role in the MD’s office and will be relinquishing my responsibilities as the coach lead within TfL. The coach responsibility will now sit within the Delivery Planning area of Surface Transport’s Planning directorate. The Coaches unit will be part of the Public Transport and Road Network team, which is headed up by Joe Uzoka, senior delivery planning manager. The person appointed to be the new Coach lead is Rhys Millier who will work alongside Robert Hall.”

The Bus and Coach Licensing area, responsible for the granting of London Service Permits, will remain the responsibility of Peter Bradley, in his new role as head of consultation delivery. To ensure continuity, Peter has kindly agreed to stay on as chairman of the London Coach Forum. The two teams will continue to work closely together to ensure that engagement with the coach industry continues to evolve and develop.
