The first was the top prize Gold Award in the TfL London Bus Garage of the Year category, which was won by Brixton garage in South London.

The second of our Gold Awards went to Tottenham garage’s engineering manager Chris Leonti, in the Unsung Heroes category.

It recognised that, for over 40 years, Chris has tirelessly maintained and managed London's buses to ensure its travelling public receives the best customer experience, and that he is renowned for his positive attitude amongst his colleagues across Arriva London. His self-motivation and will to succeed has made him the 'go-to' man for advice on all bus engineering matters and underlines his truly Unsung Hero status.

Our third winner was our Enfield driver Helen Webster, who captured the Silver Award in the Top London Bus Driver category.

The London Bus Driver awards are given to those individuals who best fit the customers' ideal: a driver who is friendly, helpful, conscientious, mindful of passengers’ comfort and wellbeing – in short, a true professional and worthy ambassador for the job.

Bob Scowen, Arriva London Managing Director, said:
