Stagecoach employees celebrate a combined 1,178 years of continued service

Stagecoach employees from across the South West including Exeter, Plymouth, Barnstaple and Torquay have been recognised for their loyal service and commitment to passenger transport at a special ceremony.

Since 1996, Stagecoach South West has been operating services across Devon and into Cornwall and Somerset. This year, 56 long-serving staff were acknowledged after accumulating an impressive 1,178 years of service between them, and each one was recognised for their hard work and commitment over the years at a celebration dinner and awards ceremony at Sandy Park, Exeter.

The evening featured a dinner followed by presentations hosted by former radio presenter and transport enthusiast Dave Sheppard.

Stagecoach South West Managing Director Peter Knight said: “It was fantastic to come together on the evening to honour our long serving employees who have remained dedicated to connecting people and communities. Over the past 12 months we’ve operated over 14 million miles and carried over 24 million customers – it’s not lost on me the size and scale of what we do everyday in rain, shine, snow and everything else in between and it is important for our teams to know that everything they do for the business and the communities we serve doesn’t go unnoticed.”
