This month’s featured driver is Steve Maddox, one of our full time minicoach drivers. Steve was born in Manchester and is the second youngest of seven boys! He now lives in Newmarket in Suffolk and has been happily married to his wife Judy for 38 years. Steve is a very proud Dad to his two adult children – Lucy and Tomas.
I asked Steve our usual question of why he chose to work for Airport Lynx. Steve explained that the job was the right fit at the right time in his life. He was ready for something new after working as a coach driver for many years and Airport Lynx had come highly recommended to him. Steve’s favourite time of day to drive is between 10am and 3pm when you miss all the rush hours and (hopefully!) glide along the road to your destination. Steve doesn’t have a particular favourite journey he just likes to not be stuck in traffic! When Steve doesn’t have passengers on board he loves listening to Radio 2.
In his spare time Steve is an active member of Newmarket Community Church. He also enjoys home DIY and is in the process of turning an old library bus into a mobile home to enable him and Judy to go off travelling when they like.
Steve’s most memorable trip since joining Airport Lynx was taking a party of school children up to Leeds for the weekend. They stopped at various local attractions and had a fabulous time – they were especially pleased about the free wifi on the minicoach!
Steve’s response to our old favourite “If you won the lottery what car would you buy” is a Mercedes SLS AMG Roadster Cabriolet. Steve thinks it would be the perfect car to cruise around in, especially on sunny days when he could enjoy the open top benefits!
Steve can be found driving our lovely, new 16 seater Mercedes Sprinter minibus all around England! Since joining us Steve has driven thousands of miles to a multitude of destinations – Bath, Southampton, London, Heathrow, Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, the Cotswolds and more!
