The Cumbria Coach Operators Association was formed originally by the North Cumbria Coach Operators, as a body to interact with various organisations upon matters concerning the operation of bus and coach transport throughout Cumbria. Our aim is to represent all PCV operators throughout the County on a democratic basis which allows the same operators to have their say on any issues that may arise. To do this effectively we need PCV operators to become a part of the CCOA and attend a number of meetings to have your say and cast your vote to ensure your voice is heard.
Over the years we have had a number of successful outcomes when dealing with Organisations such as VOSA and Cumbria County Council including the negotiation of a new Inflationary Increase Formula which has resulted in consistently giving a higher rate than the previous RPIX formula. Indeed we are now recognised as the official body by Cumbria County Council to represent the operators.
