Challenges

Quarter one also provided challenges: 

  • A nationwide driver shortage impacted bus reliability. Reduced timetables were introduced in July and are set to continue into quarter three. To address the shortages ORC committed to increase bus driver rates to the median wage from 1 October
  • ORC staffing numbers are lower than planned due to staff turnover and recruitment challenges due to a tight skills market
  • RPS timeframes have been pushed out by the High Court proceedings, and the programme is also under pressure due to vacancies and increased reliance on consultants
