Invited by First Games support to assist them to take fans to and from the Rugby World Cup matches held at Twickenham, Arriva provided up to 19 buses per fixture. The drivers came from all parts of Arriva in the South, Gillingham, Brixton, Tottenham, Barking, High Wycombe, Aylesbury, Stevenage, and Hemel Hempstead.

The Arriva team also helped to run Park and Ride services from Hounslow Civic Centre, and the connecting buses for train passengers at Richmond Station.

For the Group matches held in Milton Keynes, Arriva the Shires also assisted.

Arriva London’s Commercial Co-ordinator Phil Clark who led the operation, was delighted with the way the drivers coped with the many thousands of fans, he said:-

“Our team were a credit to Arriva – their humour and co-operation contributed to making a difficult job seem easy, we thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, and met every target we were tasked with, helping to make a success of the tournament.”
