Town's Favourite Bus Driver Honoured For Customer Service

Friday December 6 2013




A BARNSLEY bus driver has made a lasting impression on passengers to be crowned the town’s favourite driver for outstanding customer service.

As part of Stagecoach’s customer service week, Jeffrey Mann was voted the most valued driver in the customer service stars campaign for his commitment.

The campaign set out to scout the most committed bus drivers who go the extra mile for their passengers and provide the best customer service and saw more than 350 people vote for their favourite driver.

Sue Hayes, Stagecoach Yorkshire's operations director, also took to Barnsley Interchange to talk to passengers.

Jeffrey, who joined Stagecoach 12 years ago, said: "I take great pride in what I do so it’s fantastic to have been rewarded for what I love doing.

"I try and give the best service possible so this is fantastic recognition."

Ha Ha HA Bus service is a joke. Every ten minutes yeah right wait 45 minutes 4 turn up at once ,got no change on the early services, so if you have a note your walking to work ,stik your arm out they drive past ya....same old same old...

Maybe they drive past because they are too full or maybe they are not in service? They can't control how fast traffic moves. They don't have a lot of change on early buses due to the fact they need to get to the de-po for the money....

Bus drivers have to provide their own float Lance. Have you ever thought when the bus is late that it's been stuck in traffic or the driver is having to deal with someone like you that doesn't have any change. They work extremely long hours and are not that well paid. You should try it Lance.

Anyway well done Jeff.

Nice one Jeff having had pleasure of working with you I can say it well deserved. Congratulations.
As for Lance you ignorant git you know you're catching the bus the next day so why go with a note??? Make sure you get. Change the night before. If you look the ignoant person you sound I think I'd drive past you too. Also if you don't put your arm out to signal that you would like that bus the driver isn't obliged to stop neither are they if you stand behind the driver stealth like and not asking for next stop or pressing bell. I personally would never work on buses again and I did it for 10 yrs. I work on acute psychiatric and wouldn't go back on buses for all tea in China.
Again well done Jeff xxxx

It's a pity stagecoach doesn't do the manvers to chap run , via tankersley. This company has the most miserable unkempt set of drivers.

katrh u must realise a driver might have home problems,cah problem things like that might be going through a bad patch at home not forgetting the few scum and few arrogant folk out there and the silly youths that ride round at night with there mates and there phones with music on just think what that driver puts up with all yea....could you do it????

Reply Posted by lucy on Tuesday December 10 2013 at 23:13
I agree the public does not realise problems the driver may be having at home and idiots he as to put up with in his shift at work and go on jeff...good man!

the drivers job is to drive the bus and take fares not to make cheerful chat ,he needs to get going and try to keep to a schedule which some times is hard due to traffic,i get a weekly every Monday all I want is to pay 12 pound and get my pass and let the driver get going happy or not but I could not do there job with the pratts that board the bus and these people who get on and purposely want a argument with the driver or the folk winging the bus is late but when the bus comes,they are then finding there fare or pass them folk want tying to back of bus and pulling to town
