Now, it is with even greater pride that we announce that Djelal Hassan has won the coveted award for ‘Outstanding Customer Service’ at the Bus Awards ceremony held at the Riverbank Park Plaza, London. He won the award for receiving seven public commendations in eight months, with one customer suggesting he be awarded a medal for saying good morning and goodbye to every one of his passengers!

Djelal said, “It was an honour to go up and collect the award, but I believe we are all winners. I really enjoyed the event and want to thank my manager for taking the time to nominate me for this award.”

Bob Scowen, Arriva London’s Managing Director said:- “I am extremely proud of our staff and their achievements, it’s always great to see our people putting themselves forward and showing how committed they are to doing their jobs and delivering the best possible customer experience.”
