Coach Firm Wins Disabled Vote in UK


A Coventry bus and coach operator has won a national award for making travel easier for disabled people.

Travel de Courcey beat off competition from firms all over the UK to win the accessible coach operator of the year title at the operator excellence awards 2006, run by industry magazine Route One.

Judges were impressed by Travel de Courcey's fleet of accessible buses, including its range of LIFT coaches which include an access lift suitable for wheelchairs.

The company's drivers also go to care homes to find the best way of helping elderly and infirm customers to travel.

Travel de Courcey has also invested more than £½million in tripling the amount of wheelchair accessible coaches in its fleet.
