Bus Users Chair moving on to new role

Norman Baker, Chair of Bus Users UK, is leaving the organisation to take up a new role as Managing Director of Brighton bus operator, the Big Lemon.

Norman, who was Transport Minister from 2010 to 2013 with responsibility for buses, took over as Chair of Bus Users in October 2015. In his time with the organisation, he has worked closely with Chief Executive Claire Walters in raising the profile of Bus Users and helping to steer the organisation towards becoming a more diverse and representative body.

Norman said: “I have enjoyed my time with Bus Users UK and pleased to have been able to help it through a period of transition from which it has emerged stronger. It is vital that there is a powerful voice for the bus passenger and Bus Users UK is that voice."

Chief Executive, Claire Walters said: “Bus Users has benefited hugely from Norman’s commitment to, and passion for public transport. His input has been particularly valuable around the Bus Services Bill and we are pleased that his vast knowledge and expertise will continue to benefit the industry. We wish Norman every success in his new role.”

Norman takes up his new role on Tuesday 21 March 2017.
