Bus a tourism winner

L-R: Yellows' Fiona Harwood, Andrew Smith and Jenni Wilkinson

Yellow Buses has won a brace of gongs at the Bournemouth Tourism Awards.

It scooped the Transport Delivery Award and the Creative Concept of the Year Award.

The concept award was for the Yellows’ Gallery Bus, which attracted international attention for having ‘Artists in Residence’ travelling and afterwards displaying their art onboard.

Jenni Wilkinson, Head of Marketing and Customer Excellence, says: “The Gallery Bus has proved to be incredibly popular and has led to the introduction of other themed buses.

“Getting passengers from A to B is our main concern, but if we can entertain, inform or amuse them along the way then so much the better.

“The Gallery Bus looks amazing, which is down to our in-house team that put it all together once the fabulous artists had finished their work.”

Andrew Smith, Managing Director of Yellow Buses, says: “The awards are a celebration of our community’s tourism industry and Yellow Buses is an important part of it.”
