The Route One Awards 2017 evening took place on 4th of October in the Monarch Suite at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole Hotel. The awards coincide with the Coach & Bus UK Show which is held at the NEC on the 4th & 5th of October.

FCL held its annual Platinum Lounge Reception before the awards, allowing customers to enjoy a drink before the awards commenced. Business Development Managers Mike Curran and Charlotte Ward both commented on the Awards and the Platinum Lounge; “It was a great night, we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was good to catch up with customers and provided a great opportunity to network with people in the industry.”

The Route One Awards are for those who have been judged as the best in the industry, although it is a fantastic opportunity for all members of the bus industry to attend and celebrate. The awards held nearly 800 guests to the 13th annual awards. FCL hosted the largest UK Bus Operators for the awards, allowing them to attend the evening in support for their companies and colleagues.

“Among the 16 categories there are 10 for operators and five for people, while, new this year were two Best Use of Technology categories. Introduced in response to the rapidly growing influence of new technology on virtually every aspect of coach and bus operation, these new awards recognise operators who have tangible proof of ways in which the use of the latest technology has helped them deliver high quality coach or bus services.” – RouteOne

We are already looking forward to next year.
