Arriva extending A to Z routes
From the 1 May, Arriva is to extend its Route Z to include the Sundon Road roundabout as as it starts to provide service for residents within the new Linmere development at Houghton Regis.
The operator is also increasing both its Luton A and Z services to an every ten-minute service.
The development follows an investment of over £2.5million into new vehicles for Luton Busway.
“Returning the service to every ten minutes is also something I am sure our customers will be happy to see back in place” – Simon Mathieson, South Area Managing Director
Simon Mathieson, South Area Managing Director, said: “We are pleased to be increasing our Route Z to serve what is a quickly developing housing development/destination for our local community. Returning the service to every ten minutes is also something I am sure our customers will be happy to see back in place.”
Ben Phillips, Director of Strategy and Placemaking at Linmere, said “We are delighted to have this new bus service for Linmere at a time when so many new facilities at the Farmstead have recently opened. We hope more local people will now take the opportunity to visit us and enjoy the new cafe and adventure playground as well as the other amenities.”
