Yesterday at Merseytravels Bus and Tram Committee meeting a presentation was made to Robert Fletcher, a Bus Driver for Stagecoach for some 46 years.   The presentation was made at the request of the Conservative Members of Merseytravel, following the news that Robert has been awarded the MBE for services to Public Transport in Liverpool.   

It was an absolute pleasure to make this presentation to him, sadly all too often public transport comes in for a bashing and bus drivers in particular don’t always receive a good press, so it is heartening to see someone like Robert receive an award from Mersetravel and of course from the Queen.

Congratulations
