The Fleet Operator Recognition Scheme (FORS) has grown substantially both in terms of membership numbers and geographical reach, according to its 2016 Annual Review. The review, which can be found on the FORS website, highlights the progress of the scheme during 2016, including an overall membership increase of 22%, with many current members also working to progress through the accreditation levels. A rise of 49% in FORS Gold membership and 69% in FORS Silver membership, clearly demonstrates FORS members’ commitment to the scheme while enjoying the many benefits that membership provides. FORS is open to members of the bus and coach industry.
2016 also saw the first FORS Members’ Conference take place, a huge success attracting speakers and delegates from across the UK to talk about safety, efficiency and the FORS Standard. The conference was also an opportunity to celebrate key milestones that were reached in 2016, including the 4,000th accredited member, the 500th Silver member, the 150th Gold member and the 500th FORS Practitioner.
