Client Details

The Tudor Group has been contracted by Transport for Greater Manchester since 2008 to manage deep cleaning and bus shelter cleaning across Greater Manchester, and day cleaning at Shudehill Interchange.

Within our remit is the cleaning of over 900 bus stop / shelters and stations on a daily, weekly and fortnightly basis.  The shelters range from a standard shelter to a Grade A shelter that consists of 30 panels of glass; for example Piccadilly Bus Station.

Deep cleaning

When we started, our immediate task was to get each shelter to a level of cleanliness that met both our and TfGM’s high standards: to set a benchmark for the future. This was carried out throughout the night, minimising the amount of disruption and noise caused to members of the general public.   All our vehicles are kitted out with health & safety signage, cones and warning signs and our Operatives and vehicles all wear relevant PPE and high visibility equipment.

It took us 3 months to deep clean every shelter, but by doing so, we are now able to maintain these standards across the board.

Bus shelter jet washing – rearranging schedules

With more shelters being added to the schedule, we suggested rearranging the ‘rounds’ to be more efficient. With the soaring cost of diesel in mind and the inefficiencies that come with operating during peak traffic periods, we changed the hours so that each operative started in the early hours,  allowing them to organise the quickest route to complete their work.

This rearrangement has proved to be more economical whilst maintaining our cleaning standards.

JobFlow system is used by each operator recording all works completed.  The system is bespoke, designed to fulfil the clients expectations, this includes repair maintenance reports that are logged on a daily basis and a system report is sent to TfGM on a weekly basis.
