Route to Success in South Yorkshire
Realise, one of the UK’s leading training providers, has been appointed to run its ‘Route to Success’ programme by the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority to significantly bolster the number of bus drivers in the region.
Residents from across South Yorkshire who are over the age of 19 are eligible to sign up to the programme and pursue a new career as a bus driver.
A similar scheme has created more than 100 bus drivers in less than a year in West Yorkshire, while trials are being piloted in Tees Valley and Liverpool City Region.
Backed by the Mayor of South Yorkshire Oliver Coppard as part of his commitment to improving public transport in the region, it is hoped the scheme will provide a regional solution to the nationwide bus driver shortage which has gripped the industry in recent years.
