Hub for inductions of all new colleagues


Our world-class training centre is based in Twickenham, where all recruits are groomed to become London bus drivers. They are paired with an experienced driving instructor who teaches the new recruit all the skills required to navigate a bus safely through London. The new driver also receives thorough training in customer service. Drivers are periodically brought back into the training centre for ongoing career development. All our new employees, regardless of role, attend an induction programme at the training centre, where they are welcomed to the company by one of our directors and senior managers.
