Arriva London starts new route 368 service

  
  

Last October, Arriva London was awarded the contract to run route 368 from Barking, Harts Lane Estate, to Wangey Road in Chadwell Heath, for five years starting from the 30th April 2016. The service was previously operated with single deck vehicles on a twelve-minute frequency, but because of the route's popularity, to improve the customer experience, TfL asked Arriva London to enlarge the capacity of the fleet to ten double deckers, and increase the frequency to one every ten minutes.

Twenty six drivers are employed on the route, driving refurbished Trident Enviro 400s and, as driver Barry explained, the drivers are enjoying the new opportunity for themselves and their customers.

"With Arriva London taking over the 368 route, they’ve managed to improve the customer experience by putting double deckers on the route with a better frequency. For us, with the new change over point very near the garage, we have the opportunity to walk back to the canteen and use the facilities; it’s all working out really well." 

If you have any comments about the new 368 service please let us know, or if you would like the opportunity of joining our driving team, please apply here.
