Public transport workers and their families who are facing hardship will benefit from a £3,000 donation to The Transport Benevolent Fund CIO (TBF) by INIT Innovations in Transportation in Nottingham.
Every Christmas worldwide, subsidiaries of INIT’s parent company, INIT AG Karlsruhe/Germany, each select a charity within their area of operation, with TBF this year’s chosen recipient.
The cheque was presented to TBF development director Ian Barlex and TBF regional organiser Michael Gibson, by Jens Mullak, managing director of INIT, at the company’s offices in The Lace Market in Nottingham.
Ian Barlex said TBF was grateful that INIT had selected his organisation to be its beneficiary charity this Christmas. “This generous donation will assist us in our work, supporting public transport workers and their families at difficult times. The continuing relevance of the fund’s work to help those in the industry at their time of need is best illustrated by the volume of awards to members, which has exceeded £500,000 in each of the last two quarters.”
INIT Innovations in Transport is the UK subsidiary of INIT AG, the supplier of integrated ITS, planning, dispatching and ticketing systems for buses and trains.
The company provides integrated ticketing and information systems to support the principal operators in Nottingham, namely Nottingham City Transport, Trent Barton and Nottingham Express Transit trams.
