Thomas has been visiting family in Guernsey this summer. The teenager wanted to be independent during the long stay and quickly found using the buses would take him around the island.

He says he soon learned key times on the timetable and adds he can now identify the bus service going by while he’s on the beach.

Thomas wanted to learn more about the bus operation and we arranged for him and his granddad to visit the yard and meet staff.
