IPSWICH Buses has been recognised by the Prime Minister's office for the quality of its services - for the fourth time.

The council-owned bus company, which provides services in and around Ipswich, achieved the Chartermark standard for its delivery of a comprehensive network of bus services.

Malcolm Robson, Ipswich Buses managing director, said: “The achievement of the Chartermark award for a fourth time is a wonderful recognition of the hard work by a large number of staff in providing local bus services to residents.

“The Chartermark indicates our company's commitment to aiming to provide services of the highest quality and being able to address problems and issues in an effective, speedy manner, if they do arise”.

The firm is one of only two bus companies in the country - the other is Warrington Borough Transport - to achieve the Chartermark for a comprehensive network of services.

The Company first achieved the Chartermark in 1998.
