It was a clean sweep for CPT members at the prestigious routeone awards in Birmingham this week. The ceremony recognises excellence in the bus and coach sector, with CPT members topping all sixteen categories up for grabs.
CPT were part of the 800-strong crowd in attendance at Hilton Birmingham Metropole, and it was fantastic to see so many industry professionals from CPT members being rightly rewarded for their incredible efforts on behalf of their passengers.
Congratulations to all award winners!
The routeone Awards will return to Birmingham on 13 November 2024. Further information will be published in routeone in due course, and interested parties can join the mailing list at www.routeoneawards.com
