"Mark Berry named by ADL as Britain's most popular bus driver"

From The Evening Standard:

Mark Berry has been named as Britain’s most popular bus driver in a survey by the UK's leading coach and bus manufactuer Alexander Dennis (ADL).

A regular driver on the 36 and 68 Manchester to St Helens routes, Berry pipped the London 257 route stalwart Paul Lawson to be crowned the country’s king of buses. 

The poll by ADL ranks the nation’s top bus drivers according to their influence on the UK’s ever-growing passion for public transport.

It also reveals that the Clapton to Victoria Station 38 bus remains the nation’s most frequent, running once a minute at peak times. Passengers' other favourites included queuing in the drizzle and waiting outside Victoria Station.

Berry commented: “Good gracious! I’m very honoured, thank you.”
