Hair Today, Gone Tomorrow
Arriva London driver, Jason Dundas, fulfilled his new year’s resolution by getting his hair cut, in fact he’s had the lot shaved off.
The Wood Green driver hasn’t had his locks cut for a year and couldn't wait to lighten up for 2009.
Jason has been growing his hair for the sole purpose of getting it lopped off for charity. He has asked colleagues to sponsor him and has also managed to volunteer one of them to do the honours on the big day.
“I thought we would need a pair of shears,” said Jason, who has raised money for research into cancer.
Jason has a twin brother, Wayne, who is also a driver at Wood Green. Jason joked that he started to grow his hair long because it was the only way people could tell them apart.
“I couldn’t wait to have it all shaved off,” he said, “but the only thing that worries me is that January’s a bit cold. It’s cutting it a bit fine for comfort.”

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.
Reporting to the Purchasing, Stores and Administration Manager, this vacancy is for an experienced Storekeeper with Administrative experience, based at our Grays garage. You will support the garage team by ensuring an efficient supply of vehicle parts for the maintenance teams. This role is a 6 to 12 month maternity cover contract.
We currently have a vacancy for a Garage Supervisor in Enfield.
This is a key role within the organisation and the work is wide ranging, interesting and vital to the smooth running of the garage and its performance.
As the festive season approaches, we all look forward to the good-will of giving and receiving, and this was truly illustrated last week when members of our staff made a tour of London, on our open top bus, to meet representatives of some of their charities they give to through their Payroll Giving and celebrate #GivingTuesday.
Arriva London scooped three awards at the National Payroll Giving Excellence Awards held in November.
