katie tour busSt Mary’s coach tour operator Glynne Lucas is helping promote Scilly to other bus drivers and operators this month.

The industry publication ‘Route One’ has profiled the business he’s been operating in Scilly since 1989.

Glynne explains how he has survived the “fare wars” between rival minibus operators in the past by “sticking to his guns” after they fell to an unrealistic level.
