1 year ago
Over 15,000 people cast votes in an online poll of bus users, sponsored by the transport users' watchdog Bus Users UK, to choose the country's most captivating journey from a shortlist of more than 25 of the nation's finest routes.
Thanks to your votes, we were named the nations' favourite, finishing hundreds of votes ahead of our nearest rival.
Our CEO, Alex Hornby, said: “I'm absolutely delighted that Coastliner is now officially Britain's Most Scenic Bus Route – especially as the votes have come from the people whose views matter most of all to us, those who travel on our buses.
“We know from the many positive comments we receive from our customers that Coastliner is the perfect way to see the North York Moors and coast, without the hassle and stress of driving.
“And the views are just part of the story – Coastliner has been transformed, with amazing new buses offering a host of customer-friendly features, including superfast and free 4G WiFi, USB power points at every seat, audible next stop announcements and comfortable coach seating.
“This wonderful news is ideally timed as the summer season begins – we're looking forward to welcoming new customers to take a seat with us on the top deck, to enjoy the grandstand views of the Moors and coast which make Coastliner Britain's Most Scenic Bus Route.”
The outcome is also being welcomed by Bus Users UK Chief Executive Claire Walters, who said: “The survey celebrates Britain's best bus routes, and encourages more people to experience spectacular views of our moors, dales and coast without having to worry about driving, directions or parking. We are fortunate to have regular routes like Coastliner which serve rural communities, while opening up access to Britain's finest coast and countryside.”
