In her role as British Art Show 8 Ambassador, theatre maker and writer Anna Carr met Southampton bus drivers to engage them in the exhibition. She conducted a series of interviews with five of our Unilink drivers, about bus driving, their lives and how they see the city. With the driver’s help Anna edited their conversations into a collection of creative writing, entitled Us Drivers, and installed as a series of panels in the foyer of Southampton Art Gallery.
Drivers, staff, friends and the general public were be able to view Us Drivers, at the Southampton Art Gallery exhibition.
British Art Show is a national touring exhibition that provides a vital overview of some of the most exciting contemporary art produced in the UK.
Unilink is operated along side Bluestar bus Go South Coast in partnership with the University of Southampton for students, but also for residents and visitors of Southampton itself.
Every month we have a mystery shopping report conducted across our services measuring the condition of our buses, standard of our roadside information as well as the customer service our drivers provide. They take snapshot of our customers experiences when they travel with us, and our aim is to reach 100% satisfaction.
Our scores recently have been very pleasing and growing, this month we scored a fantastic 94% for the second month in a row, and an overall 91% for the year.
We’re continuing to work hard to ensure the services we provide are of the highest quality and that the levels of satisfaction continues to increase
Transport for local events
Here at Unilink we are only too happy to provide buses to help transport visitors to Southampton to various events and locations around the city. From exhibitions, to Science Days and University Open Days, Unilink has helped thousands of people move around Southampton with friendly drivers and a modern clean fleet of buses.
