There’s a smart new look to the drivers on Kinchbus services who are proudly wearing a new uniform. More than 100 Kinchbus, sprint and skylink Leicester-Derby drivers are sporting the new designs, created by supplier Uniform Express. It follows a successful trial period that took place last year, which took on board comments and suggestions from the team to finalise the design.
This is the first major uniform update in more than 10 years and was designed to express the heritage of the company whilst giving the team a contemporary, stylish and comfortable image that makes them both stand out and look approachable.
Alex Kerr, general manager at Kinchbus, said: “Our drivers have always been one of the things our customers love the most. “Over the past few years we’ve been working hard to develop a new uniform that reflects our modern image and friendly approach. We needed a great new look for Loughborough’s finest, and I think we’ve achieved just that.”
The new uniform is comprised of shirts, ties, cravats, trousers, skirts, suit blazer, overcoat, rucksack, all-weather soft shell gilet and a jacket. It’s all topped off, for colder weather, by a bobble hat. The new look can be seen worn by the drivers on Kinchbus 2, 5, 9, 11 and 12, Loughborough’s sprint service and on the skylink which connects Leicester, Loughborough and Derby with East Midlands Airport.
