Vix sponsors new BDoY award
A new trophy will be given to the fifth placed finalist of the UK Bus Driver of the Year (BDoY) Competition. It will be awarded by Vix Technology, which has joined the ranks of BDoY sponsors. The trophy will be accompanied by a £150 cash award. The competition’s National Final takes place in Blackpool on 14 September 2014.
Global Chief Operating Officer at Vix Technology, Matt Beeton, said, ‘We chose to sponsor BDoY as it encourages drivers to compete to be the safest in the country. Bus driving can be a difficult job with the stress of road congestion and demanding passengers. Drivers don’t get enough recognition for their skills behind the wheel and for caring for their customers, so this award plays an important part in giving these unsung heroes a pride in their job and, hopefully, more and more of them will be assisted by Vix Technology in the future.’
