Shuttle Scoops Industry Award


Stourbridge’s innovative rail shuttle service has won another award at a prestigious industry event.
Pre Metro Operations – who operate the service between Stourbridge’s Junction & Town railway stations – was awarded “Highly Commended” in the “Operator of the Year” section at the Global Light Rail Awards 2017, held in London. The operation was runner up to joint winners Edinburgh Trams and Transdev Dublin Light Rail.
It is the second year in succession that the operation – operated in partnership with London Midland – has scooped the award.
An expert panel of industry judges evaluated around 100 entries from light rail systems around the globe, covering customer experience, safety and technical initiatives, engineering and operational excellence, and system design.
Pre Metro Chief Executive Phil Evans said;
“We are delighted to be once again recognised by our industry colleagues for our innovative and environmentally-friendly operation here in the Black Country. Our staff work tirelessly to provide the Stourbridge Shuttle service every day, with industry-leading levels of reliability”.
