Bus driver Bernard Jefford recently celebrated 40 years in the public transport service. When he retired at Christmas he treated himself to a most appropriate personal number plate BJ02 BUS. Not only does it represent his initials but also his occupation.
Bernard keeps in contact by working one day a week for National Express as a duty Manager for their Rail Replacement Unit, controlling 90 coaches covering the West Coast Rail line when it is closed for maintenance.
“I found my personal number online and was given every assistance by Regtransfers to make it go through smoothly,” said Bernard. In the picture above, Bernard (right) meets up with driver Chris Plummer who is a regular on the National Express 450 route between Mansfield and London. Chris was ‘cock-a-hoop’ with Bernard’s registration and is determined to get one for himself.
Bernard, who travels the M1 between Nottingham and London, concludes: “The number plates are getting recognised by National Express drivers who acknowledge it with a bit of headlight flashing.”
