Welcome to the website for CPT's 'Coach Friendly' status.

In 2003, in an effort to raise the profile of coaching across the UK, CPT developed and launched 'Coach Friendly' status. The status has been designed to recognise and reward the commitment made by towns, cities and villages to understanding the requirements of coaches and their passengers, while also providing first-class facilities, access and information for drivers. 

Due to the success to date of this coach industry initiative - 27 locations across the UK have now achieved the status - earlier this year (March 2016) the scheme was extended to also include individual visitor attractions. A number of well known landmark attractions, including the instantly recognisable Orbit in the ArcelorMittal Olympic Park, have already been awarded Coach Friendly status.

Details of all of our 'status holders' can be found by clicking on the link.

Can your town, city, village or tourist attraction afford not to be Coach Friendly?  Find out if you meet our required standards and what you need to do in order to meet the criteria for acceptance by clicking on the 'requirements' page.
