Arriva launches Wrightbus VDLs
Arriva Midlands has launched three new Wrightbus bodied VDL SB200 single deckers onto its Burton on Trent and Derby services. Representing an investment of £450,000, the buses each feature free Wi-Fi, CCTV and E-leather trimmed seats. Two of the vehicles will be utilised on the X38 route, a direct service between Burton on Trent and Derby, which is operated in partnership with trentbarton. It runs up to every 20 minutes in the daytime Monday to Saturday and every 30 minutes in the day on Sundays. The third will be used on local bus services in Burton on Trent.
Area MD of Arriva Midlands, Alex Parry, said, ‘We’re proud to deliver these high quality vehicles to our customers on X38 who are now able to enjoy their journeys in even greater comfort, with the added benefit of travelling in a more environmentally friendly way. We are committed to leading the way when it comes to using technology to provide solid benefits to our customers and the environment, and the introduction of these new vehicles is a prime example of how we are working together to deliver a better quality transport service across the county.’
