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.
