Mock Public Inquiry completes Coach & Bus UK theatre programme

Compliance issues: The devil is in the detail

Getting called before the Traffic Commissioner is not something any O-Licence holder or Transport Manager looks forward to, but what happens if you are called to a Public Inquiry for not being compliant?

Visit the Theatre on 2 October at 1500hrs to see Nick Denton, Traffic Commissioner for the West Midlands and Laura Hadzik, Solicitor from Backhouse Jones deliver a mock Public Inquiry focusing on common compliance issues that potentially result in action being taken against operators and Transport Managers.

This is just one of many engaging sessions that visitors can attend, free of charge, at Coach & Bus UK.

Graham Vidler, Chief Executive, Confederation of Passenger Transport will give the opening address, outlining their vision for the future of coaches and buses. Other high-profile speakers will cover hot topics including:

  • Opportunities for operators at the 2022 Commonwealth Games
  • The future of autonomous coaches and buses
  • ULEZ and Clean Air Zones – what have we learned?
  • Retrofitting of coaches
  • Diversity in the industry
  • And much more…
