Our BUSES conferences are the friendly and convivial way to network and learn about the latest developments, innovations and strategies within the UK Bus and Coach industry. Our events give delegates the opportunity to meet with colleagues in unpressured surroundings, enjoy a sociable luncheon and share the knowledge of seasoned guest speakers.

The Bus conferences form one day of our two-day regional Public Transport conferences jointly hosted with our sister publication Modern Railways. For details of our seven rail events go to www.modernrailways.com/fourth-friday-club

Presentations from past conferences

Overview of Greater Manchester's bus route franchise strategy - Andy Burnham

The Mayor of Greater Manchester opened the conference. Andy is the first mayor to spearhead a move to a franchised bus network, taking advantage of a change in legislation to allow greater public control of bus services. This new network went live within two weeks of the conference date. The city region has an ambitious target of 30% passenger growth.

Wider Ambitions of Manchester's Bee Network - TfGM

Stephen Rhodes and Anne-Marie Purcell head up bus activities at Transport for Greater Manchester and are managing delivery of the Bee Network. They provided insight into the franchising process, and future goals for the network.

Mobilising a bus franchise - Nigel Featham

Currently holding responsibility for two of the north’s largest bus operations, Nigel is well placed to view the challenges faced by the industry across a wide swathe of the region. He is involved in both the largest Bus Service Improvement Plan grant in England, in Tyne & Wear, and the franchising transformation taking place in Greater Manchester.
