April 28, 2017

Leading Midlands Bus and Coach operator, Travel de Courcey, has been awarded a prestigious Queen’s Award for Enterprise 2017 in the category of Sustainable Development. The award was made in recognition of Travel de Courcey’s strong record of growth, innovation and sustainable development.

The Queen’s Awards – announced on the monarch’s birthday – are the UK’s most prestigious business awards, celebrating excellence and outstanding achievements in UK business. Travel de Courcey is the only bus and coach operator, in the 51-year history of the Queen’s Awards, to be recognised.  All recipients of the Queen’s Award will attend a formal reception with Her Majesty The Queen at Buckingham Palace in late summer.

The Queen’s Award builds upon Travel de Courcey’s previous recognition as one of the ‘Top 1,000 Companies to Inspire Britain’ by the London Stock Exchange and the British Growth Fund, and success at the UK Bus Awards, UK Coach Awards and RouteOne Awards.

Adrian de Courcey, CEO of Travel de Courcey commented: “We are thrilled to win such a prestigious award. The Queen’s Award for Enterprise is very special and great recognition for the efforts of our outstanding team over many years.”

Simon Posner, CEO of the Confederation of Passenger Transport commented: “We are delighted to learn that CPT member Travel de Courcey has been awarded the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Sustainable Development, the single highest recognised award for British businesses. This well-deserved award is a true testament to the continued efforts and on-going commitment of Adrian and the team at Travel de Courcey and we wish them a very enjoyable day at the Palace later this summer.”
