Arriva London buses wrapped in Poppy livery
In support of this year’s Poppy Appeal a number of Transport for London vehicles including two Arriva London buses, have been covered in poppies.
Arriva London is proud to be included in what has now become an annual tradition, the wrapping of London buses in poppy livery.
Two Arriva London buses together with six others have been wrapped, and two Circle line Tube trains. All London Underground, London Overground and DLR trains also have poppies on the front and back of every train, as a mark of respect for the sacrifices made by London’s service men and women, past and present.
This year marks the 92nd year of the London Transport Old Comrades Association. They were given the right to march by King George V in honour of the staff of the London General Omnibus Company in 1920, who drove buses to the front line in France and Belgium from 1914 to 1918.
This year fifty Old Comrades, led out by John Norris, a retired London bus driver who served in the Royal Engineers from 1964-1967, continue the tradition of marching alongside the Armed Forces and will lay a wreath at the Cenotaph in the Annual Remembrance Sunday parade on 8 November in honour of the 4500 transport workers who died in two World Wars and other conflicts.

Sound investment is the key to success for any business, and for Arriva London much of that success is generated by our investment in quality Engineering training.
We are extremely proud to announce that, for the second year running, through the continued generosity of our staff, we have been awarded the prestigious Charity Aids Foundation Payroll Giving Platinum Award.
We train our drivers in all aspects of customer service, and as we often hear from our passengers, our staff go above and beyond the call of duty to help, be it someone with mobility difficulties or maybe someone who is looking for directions.
If you want to transport a party of people to a special destination to help them celebrate a great occasion, you could do no better than hiring an Arriva Heritage fleet historic Routemaster.
The generosity of our staff is reflected in Arriva London receiving the prestigious Government’s Charity Aids Foundation Platinum Award last year, which means that over 20% of the staff give to charity through the company’s Payroll Giving scheme.
Arriva London supports local communities in many ways, so when asked to be involved in this project for yet another year, the decision was an easy one.
