"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.

It is not an easy task to design artwork for a bus over 11m long, over 4m high and 2.5m wide, but there were approximately 538 entries from several Primary schools! The sheer number and standard of entries was overwhelming!
The London Bus Awards gives TfL and bus operators the opportunity to recognise the commitment demonstrated on a daily basis from drivers, support teams and frontline TfL staff. The London bus network would not be the same without people of such a high calibre as those nominated for the awards.
Our open-top Heritage Fleet Routemaster, RMC 1464, held pride of place as part of Eldon Primary School’s celebration of the Queen’s 90th birthday.
Every year, as part of the plan to maintain the high standards of its bus drivers, Arriva London holds a Bus Driver of the Year competition.
Catch the Bus Week is a nationwide campaign aimed at driving awareness of the benefits of taking the bus.
The ethos behind Arriva London’s Heritage Fleet is to maintain a moving history of London, and to this effect buses from the fleet are often invited to prestigious days out to continue that theme.
