We all want to believe that we can operate to the highest possible standard in terms of safety, but it is another thing to actually show you are doing so. Being a member of BUSK Benchmark shows that we take safety seriously; the principals of Benchmark are to recognise coach operators that hold the same beliefs about safety and also to educate and provide a useful resource to members of the public and in particular educational establishments that want to hire a coach.
Being a coach operator that is Benchmarked demands that we meet BUSK's rigorous qualifying criteria and we care about the safe passage of our customers.
