Arriva London drives train loads of passengers!
In addition to the daily routine of carrying over a million passengers per day across London, Arriva London has been successful in securing a three week contract to run a Victoria Line Underground replacement service between Walthamstow Central and Stratford City.
The bus replacement service is necessary as the Victoria line is being closed for three weeks, starting on Monday 10th August, to permit expansion work to be carried out, allowing a greater volume of trains to be received at Walthamstow in the future.
During the contract period, the buses, arriving to and from Stratford, will give passengers the opportunity of connecting with the Jubilee and Central lines as well as National Rail. At the same time, Arriva London is also assisting another bus operator during this closure, with a replacement service between Walthamstow and Seven Sisters.
Rail replacement converts to rugby!
Immediately following this contract, Arriva London’s Commercial team will start planning the company’s involvement, in supplying transport for fans and officials at the Rugby World Cup operation at Twickenham.
The rugby theme continues with a new season of Saracen shuttles, providing fans with transport to and from Saracen’s home games at Allianz Park, from Edgware, Mill Hill Broadway and Mill Hill East stations. Arriva London is pleased to announce that this contract has been renewed for a further two seasons.
If Arriva London could assist you with any of your passenger transport requirements, then please contact the Arriva London commercial department on 0207 302 0626.

Doing the right thing, one of our four brand values, is what we have been doing for the last six years by encouraging all of our employees to give to their favourite charities through our Payroll Giving scheme - during this time, they have given more than £1,000,000 pounds to over 160 charities.
Going to school is something we all had to do, but going to school with a red London double-decker bus, and letting four classes from year one come on board to ask questions about the bus, is a privilege we experienced this week at Newbury Park Primary School in North East London.
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.
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.
