METRO has published a summary of its achievements during the last year.
The organisation - which manages public transport for West Yorkshire - has put the `best value summary' on the West Yorkshire Passenger Transport Authority website, www.wypta.gov.uk.
The summary describes Metro's successes during 2005.
These include being accredited with the Charter Mark for customer excellence, keeping their Investor in People status and being put on a list of the top 100 employers by the Guardian newspaper.
They have also launched a £9m satellite-linked system - yournextbus - which allows people to text message the number of their bus stop to Metro to find out when the next service arrives.
This was introduced in September 2005 and now gets 3,000 enquiries each day.
The summary also gives details of new Metro bus stations opened in Batley, Cleckheaton and Ossett during 2005 and the introduction of MetroConnect buses.
These are designed to link urban and rural communities. Currently, some are running to Elland and Leeds/Bradford Airport.
There is a section on rail services in the summary.
This details the success of the first of a £250m fleet of new trains running on the TransPennine Express line between Manchester and Hull.
Also in the summary are plans to buy another 60 extra-safe yellow school buses for West Yorkshire in September this year - thanks to £7m in funding from the Department of Transport.
These buses will add to a fleet which is carrying 3,600 West Yorkshire pupils to and from school each day.
