Bus Initiative Driving Forward

Open top bus 2

7:43am 10th November 2014

Weymouth students and Bus Drivers have been getting on board a new workshop that's helping get confidence between the groups going in the right direction.

The event was held at the Community Fire Station in the town and it was looking at how trust can be built up through activities like role play.

It was set up by Dorset County Council and First Buses and they're hoping to repeat the workshop across the South West.   

Toni Coombs, the council's Cabinet member for education and communications said: "We're so pleased this first workshop was such a success for both the students and the bus company. Hopefully, it might even encourage other public transport providers to run similar courses."

The students from All Saints School and Westfield, a Dorset Deputy Member of Youth Parliament, as well as four drivers from First Bus took part as well as a representative from Bus Users UK.
