TfGM Complaints Process

Operational Bus Planning is using a new complaints system. This will allow TfGM’s  Customer Relations Department to log and forward it to the correct departments (including ourselves Operational Bus Planning). The benefit of this is it will leave an audit trail, identify who is dealing with what in which department and will provide a better service for our customers. Often a lot of comments, require an answer from just one department but sometime a comment may require various sections of TfGM to work together to provide an answer as well as contacting third parties; such as Bus Operators, Schools, Local Council Officers and outside agencies. This process ensures that comments are dealt with more effectively and efficiently as well as meeting legal guidelines.

Therefore, going forward please send emails (unless immediate urgent action is required) direct to our Customer Relations Department at – this enables it to be logged, assigned a case number and also be covered by TfGM data protection. Otherwise we will be unable to process it.
