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

Reforming buses in the Liverpool City Region - Matt Goggins

While Manchester is the first city region to take advantage of the opportunity presented by new government legislation to bring in a franchised bus model for its public transport network, the Liverpool region has been strongly considering such a model itself. Matthew provided the authority’s perspective on reforming buses – which direction will it take?

Reshaping the business post-Covid - Ben Gilligan

Ben Gilligan is currently at the helm of East Yorkshire Buses, which has been part of the Go-Ahead Group since 2018, though the operation has a rich history stretching back almost a century. The operator has undertaken a significant restructure in the wake of the Covid-19 pandemic, and Ben provided an update on what this means for the iconic company.

The importance of a digital asset management strategy in the bus industry - Hexagon

The bus industry may be more ‘analogue’ than many industries, but a digital asset management strategy is still an important consideration, as Adam Cross and Lee Sands explained.
