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

Inspiring the next generation to join the industry - Zachary McAskill

Representing the largest operator in Manchester’s deregulated bus market, Zach is in charge of the company’s transition back into regulated operations. As well as preparing for one of the biggest operational shake-ups since deregulation, he is interested in attracting a new generation of drivers, managers and other key employees to the bus industry.

Delivering zero emission bus fleets - Alexander Dennis

The largest bus manufacturer in the UK, Alexander Dennis launched its own electric range last year, and has delivered many hundreds of zero emission buses in partnership with Chinese manufacturer BYD. With ever-increasing pressure and demand for zero emission vehicles, Matthew Lawrence explained how his company is meeting this challenge.

Flixbus's sustainability initiatives and commitment to transport in the north - Andreas Schörling

Flixbus has been expanding its express coach services at a high rate over the last few years, with connections reaching through into Europe as far as Ukraine. With the north of England long being frustrated by a lack of rail development, could the operator’s express services help to fill the gap? Andreas discussed what his company is providing to the region.
