SOUTHDOWN MOTOR Services is being reorganised into four separately accountable divisions to trasfer much of the decision-making and responsibility to its operating locations.
Four separately accountable bus divisions Hampshire, West Sussex, Brighton and Hove and East Sussex — each headed by a manager and a coach division headed by the company traffic manager are being created.
Managers and fleet engineers for each division will be responsible to the company general manager.
