With heavy snowfall bringing roads across Harrogate and Knaresborough to a standstill, drivers, engineers, cleaners and the directors of The Harrogate Bus Company have been out with the shovels and grit to get things moving – helping stranded motorists and buses alike.
Operations Director Vitto Pizzuti said:
Our team has really pulled together, to try and help around the town on a difficult day. The weather looks to have caught a lot of people by surprise, so we’ve been out gritting roads, getting stuck cars moving again, and doing what we can to help.
The generosity of others has been really welcome too – like the team in Sainbury’s in Knaresborough bringing hot drinks to our drivers waiting in the bus station.
We’re hoping to have buses running normally again very soon, thanks to the effort of our colleagues.
