Catch the Bus Week is a nationwide campaign aimed at driving awareness of the benefits of taking the bus.

To help Arriva celebrate this initiative, Andrew Jones, the minister for buses, was invited to Arriva London’s Brixton garage to meet the staff who work hard to ensure the buses run on time, and to have a sample driving lesson in a New Routemaster from Theo Farmer, one of Arriva London’s driving instructors.

Catch the Bus Week is a unique and fun initiative to show people the benefits of what can hopefully lead to long term travel change. Britain has a valuable opportunity to harness the potential of the bus, to make the economy stronger, help the job market work better and to build a more inclusive society.

Arriva London carries over one million passengers a day in London, and is always looking for ways to improve its customer relations and encourage more users. For more information about Catch the Bus Week go to     www.catchthebusweek.co.uk
