Coach operator update

This week the committee met with our coach operators for a progress update regarding the provision of travel services for our away games this season.

With Tyrers having been selected as our new coach provider for 2021/22, we have been pleased with the large amount of positive feedback received so far. This has included positive comments regarding:

  • the ‘amenable and pleasant’ drivers, who are allocated to us for the season
  • The high standards of comfort, particularly on the luxury executive double decker coach
  • The affordable travel options, with cheaper travel now available in addition to the executive options. For example, when travelling to Wimbledon, members saved up to £14 per person on the prices quoted within other tender applications pre-season.

We also shared some feedback and suggestions from our members regarding ways that services may be improved further, and it was agreed that these will be actioned going forward:

  • DVD players – all players are in full working order and WASC will provide a selection of DVDs including past Wigan games, to be stored with the coach operator and used on each journey
  • USB ports on each seat will be checked to ensure they are working prior to each game
  • On all return journeys, comfort stops will be kept to a minimum, especially when there are two drivers. The emphasis will be on getting back to Wigan as soon as possible.
  • Pick up points between Ashton and the Stadium, we are looking into this and further feedback from travellers would be appreciated on where before a trial run is put in place.

Your feedback is essential to help us continue to improve our services, so if you would like to provide any further suggestions, or to share your experiences of match day travel with the Supporters Club, please email: info@wiganathleticsupportersclub.co.uk
