Morebus appoints Lisa Sparrow to newly-branded Unibus role
Go Ahead-owned Morebus has appointed Lisa Sparrow as assistant operations manager for its newly-branded services in and around Bournemouth and Poole. The new partnership between Morebus and Bournemouth University, will see the operator running specially-designed university bus routes until at least summer 2026.
Sparrow will manage Unibus’ workforce operations, with responsibility for recruitment and people management, as well as deputising in the day-to-day running of the business and service standards across the region.
Previously working as operational manager in a 21-year stint for London Underground, Sparrow was responsible for a staff of around 200 in four stations in central London. After moving to Dorset, she spent time working with patient transport for a local ambulance service.
“I missed the hustle and bustle of the transport industry and I jumped at the chance to work with Morebus and Bournemouth University at Unibus,” says Sparrow. “I’m already enjoying the challenge of overseeing Unibus operations. As well as enhancing customer service still further, our current focus is queue-busting and reducing loading times - and we’re succeeding in doing both.”
