Safeguard has named its new Optare Metrocity bus after long-serving staff member Linda Chambers, who retired today after 28 years’ service to the company. The new bus will become a regular addition to the routes 4 & 5 Royal Surrey Hospital and Park Barn service, which runs from Guildford bus station.
Andrew Halliday, Managing Director at Safeguard says: “Linda has been the familiar voice of the company dealing with customer bus and coach enquiries, initially based at Guildford Bus Station and then moving to our Guildford office reception. This is the first time Safeguard has named one of its fleet after a retiring staff member and signifies what a huge role Linda has played in the company’s history. Although she will be sorely missed by all her colleagues and many of our long-standing customers, the bus will serve as a pleasant reminder of her contribution to the business.”
