East Yorkshire puts passenger comfort first

Published on

Hull-based bus company East Yorkshire Motor Services has launched a new campaign to make sure passengers have the best possible experience when travelling on their services.

The campaign will ensure those travelling experience a pleasant environment by looking at both passenger comfort and bus safety.  From 25 February all the company's buses running in Hull, the East Riding and Scarborough will display specially created signs showing passengers how they can contribute to an enjoyable trip.  Simple things such as talking quietly on phones and making sure the volume is kept low on personal music players can show respect for fellow passengers and make the journey more enjoyable for everyone.

Drivers will also be handing out leaflets to passengers to assure them that EYMS are doing all they can to make their journey relaxing and safe.
The safety aspect of the campaign was launched by a competition amongst local school children.  This was won by Jade Murphy, 11, of Rokeby Park Primary School, Hull, who created a ‘bus safety' poster.  Her design will now be seen in almost 100 EYMS buses throughout Hull, reminding people to stay safe when travelling.  She was invited to the EYMS Depot on Anlaby Road to place the first poster on a bus.  

This campaign, along with the company's recent £3 million investment in modern and accessible new buses, shows that passenger comfort and safety is at the top of the EYMS agenda.
