The Isle of Wight bus operator scored highly in an overall satisfaction rating, according to national watchdog – Passenger Focus.
Customers were surveyed between September and November 2014 for the annual survey and gave scores and views on various aspects of the firm’s performance – including convenience, punctuality, service, comfort and condition of both vehicle and shelter.
Andrew Wickham, managing director of Southern Vectis said:
“I am pleased with the overall performance of Southern Vectis, during what has been a very important year for us.
“We are a little down on last year’s impressive 92 percent overall satisfaction levels – but we hope to rectify that by making a widespread improvements to the services we offer here.
“Following a comprehensive consultation exercise, we have introduced significant enhancements to our timetable. And we have also invested heavily in our route 1 fleet – just this week launching around £1.2 million worth of new double decker and single decker buses.
“There is always more we can do to make travelling with us an even more pleasurable experience for our customers – and the latest Passenger Focus survey will help us work with the local authority to identify any further areas of improvement.”
