Arriva London retains route W6 and introduces nine new buses

  
  

Last June, Arriva London was delighted to have been re-awarded the TfL contract to run route W6 (Edmonton Green – Southgate Station) for a further five years, starting in January 2018 with brand new buses.

The W6 service operates with nine buses from our Enfield garage, and although the new buses are not required on the route until the New Year, we are pleased to have introduced them earlier to improve the customer experience.

More than twenty drivers are required to operate the route and to see what our drivers feel about the new buses, we went out and spoke to a couple of them about their new experience, including driver Hasan who has been with the company for five months. He explained how the drivers are enjoying the new buses and how comfortable they are for both themselves and the passengers; he said:

"These buses are with new technology - with the stop and start system - which helps the environment. There’s a lot of space and they’re very comfortable for the passengers and the drivers. The cab layout is very good for the driver and the buses kneel, not just from the front but from the back as well, to help pushchairs to come on more safely. Overall, a very good bus."

Ender, one of Hasan’s colleagues, said:

"There are very good comments from the passengers about the new W6 buses, and when they leave the bus they say ‘Thank you driver’, which tells me that they enjoyed their journey."

If you have any comments about the new buses on route W6 then please let us know, or if you would like to join Hasan & Ender and become a member of our driving team, please apply here.
