Arriva selling Cannock depot to D&G Bus
From the end of service on 9 January 2021, Arriva is planning to hand over the running and operation of its Cannock bus depot and all local routes operated from the site to D&G Bus.
The decision was made following a review of the performance of the depot.
Arriva’s Cannock depot has 29 services covering areas around Cannock and Stafford, nearly all of which would be passed onto D&G from the effective takeover date. There would be no change to services operated as D&G Bus will continue to run all Arriva routes as they currently operate. It is intended that all Cannock depot staff will transfer over to their new employer from the effective take over date and will continue their roles but under the new operating name. Arriva’s route 5 in Stafford and services between Tamworth and Lichfield are unaffected and will continue to be run by Arriva.
Simon Mathieson, Area Managing Director for Arriva, said: “Although we will be sad to hand over operations of our Cannock depot, we are delighted that it will be in the hands of D&G Bus, a well-known local bus company, and know that they will take great care of the depot, customers and all the employees.”
