Arriva London is delighted to announce the retention of route 377 from TfL, which runs from Oakwood Station to Ponders End at Enfield. The new contract which started this month using five new Enviro 200 single deck buses, and lasts for a further five years, has been extremely well received by both Arriva London staff and the travelling public.
As Si Desai one of Arriva London’s Enfield route 377 drivers says:-
“With regards to winning the contract and having the new buses, we’re overjoyed. The buses are easier to drive, it’s smoother, it rides better with the undulations of the road and the passengers feel an immense difference and are very happy with the new buses”
