"The Night Bus" community on Arriva London buses
Arriva London has always been proud of its relationship with its local communities, and was pleased when a television production company got in touch with a view to depicting that very same community on our TV screens.
A three part Channel Four documentary series “The Night Bus” has its first episode airing tonight (www.channel4.com/programmes/the-night-bus) and shows just how much London buses depict London life, meeting loved ones, starting relationships and keeping in touch across the capital.
Employing the fixed-rig technology behind hits The Fried Chicken Shop and Educating, the series captures the wide variety of passengers travelling on some of the capital's night buses. From late night revellers and tourists visiting the West End to shift-workers leaving home at first light, the series provides an intimate portrait of London at night and the round-the-clock efforts made by drivers and support staff to keep the night bus working for London.
On Arriva London’s route N29, Episode 1 reveals how the night bus can become the busiest pick-up joint on four wheels, where love can strike when you least expect it. Don’t miss it, Channel 4 @ 10pm.

This year’s Lord Mayor’s Show, on 11th November, was an amazing cause for celebration, not only to welcome in the new Lord Mayor, but also to celebrate another year of Platinum giving by our wonderfully generous Payroll Givers.
Route 175 operates with 16 double-deck vehicles from our Barking garage, with a twelve-minute frequency during the day. Route 103 operates from our Grays garage with 14 buses, with an eight-minute daytime frequency.
Preparations are complete for our display entry in this year’s Lord Mayor’s Show on Saturday. The Arriva London theme again this year is to celebrate the enormous contribution our staff make to charities through the Payroll Giving scheme. With over 1,000 staff supporting over 160 charities every week, and over £1,000,000 having been given in the last five years.
The buses, which were recently on display on the South Bank opposite the Houses of Parliament, will be seen throughout London and the City until November 12th, as a mark of respect for the sacrifices made by London’s service men and women, past and present.
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.
