Arriva London are proud, once again, to be the providers of the mode of transport to deliver London’s most original gastronomic road trip - the London restaurant festival’s Champagne Gourmet Odyssey.
Last week, Arriva London were invited to take part in the Older People’s Celebration Week across Barking and Dagenham.
When our garage staff asked if they could support this year's Macmillan Coffee Morning, we were delighted to encourage them to do so.
At Arriva London, we are always looking for ways to improve our environmental footprint, and are excited when our staff suggest ways in which they can also contribute to this aim.
On Saturday 26th August, Arriva London was pleased to support the eighth annual bus service to the normally deserted Wiltshire village of Imber, situated in the middle of Salisbury Plain military training area.
As part of our continuous ongoing staff training and development programme, this week, together with colleagues from TfL, we conducted a Hello London Accessibility Forum at our Brixton garage, and invited our drivers to participate in the discussion.
