Rosso unveils tribute bus to Manchester’s COVID-19 heroes

Rosso and parent company Transdev have teamed up with the Manchester Evening News to create a special liveried ‘Greater Manchester heroes’ bus in honour of the city’s NHS teams and key workers.

Transdev has introduced its ‘heroes’ liveried buses throughout the pandemic, celebrating local community workers.

As with its other tribute vehicles, the bus is decorated with images of NHS staff, firefighters and other key workers nominated by friends, relatives, and their representative organisations.

Operations Manager at Rosso, Phil Harris, says: “As key workers ourselves, our drivers and support teams know first-hand how important it is to keep on serving local people by helping others who need to make a journey, including to and from work or to pick up food or access services.

“We know there are many unsung heroes doing all kinds of jobs right now who deserve our community’s thanks, and so we decided to recognise them by covering our ‘Greater Manchester heroes’ bus with their photos, along with the jobs they do – with our amazing NHS workers given pride of place.
