Passenger rise for Rosso one year on from Transdev buyout

first_imgRosso is celebrating 12 months of success since becoming part of the Transdev family last year.The firm’s 240 staff and 102 buses became part of Transdev in January 2018 – a move which gave the green light to an immediate £3m investment in a new fleet of buses for its routes in and around Rossendale, Bury and Rochdale.This has seen customer numbers on its main network rise by over 9% in the last 12 months.Rosso introduced new-look buses to Lakeline in summer 2018, leading to a 10.2% rise in customers using the service by October compared with the previous year.Transdev CEO Alex Hornby says: “In just 12 months we’ve welcomed thousands more customers on board as a result of our investment.“The investment in the new Lakeline brand has seen a double-digit rise in the number of customers now travelling on this route alone. We’re working hard to build on those excellent results with more improvements across our network in 2019.”last_img read more
