Entries are now open for the UK Bus Awards 2024. UK BUS AWARDS

The organisers of the UK Bus Awards say they are excited to announce that entries are now open for the 2024 competition, which continues to build on the success of previous years with a streamlined entry process, ensuring ease and accessibility for all participants.

Alan Millar, Chair of the UK Bus Awards, said: “We are thrilled to open entries for the 2024 UK Bus Awards and to continue celebrating the exceptional achievements within our industry. This year’s awards promise to be as competitive and inspiring as ever, showcasing the best in innovation, service, and dedication.

“The streamlined entry process and the careful selection of categories ensure that we recognise the true leaders and innovators who are driving the bus industry forward. We look forward to seeing the incredible submissions and celebrating with our finalists and winners at the presentation ceremony in November.”

Nominations close at 1700hrs on Friday 3 August (or 30 August for London awards). The presentation ceremony will be held on Tuesday 26 November at Troxy in London.

Due to what organisers call ‘strategic adjustments’ following discussions with stakeholders, the Buses for Leisure, Enriching the Customer Experience and Top Express Service categories will be rested for this year, but there will be 20 other categories available for nominations.

The initial entry process requires an email of between 300 and 500 words describing the nominated project or person, and the judging process will include interviews, discussions, and mystery travelling throughout August and September. The finalists will be announced online in mid-October.
