There's no business like bus business
While the rest of Hollywood fight to book their limousines to the Oscars this February, tinseltown’s biggest star chose to travel in style today on Arriva North East’s new X1 service.
To celebrate the launch of their new X1, the best one, service on 13 February, Arriva brought a little bit of Hollywood glamour to Darlington, as their Marilyn Monroe lookalike took to the red carpet at Joseph Pease Place today. The service’s team of dedicated drivers were on hand to show Marilyn the kind of star treatment all our passengers can expect when they travel on the X1.
Nigel Featham, managing director of Arriva North East said: “We are excited to be launching the new X1 service in Darlington. It allows us to offer an express service that will run alongside our existing 1/1B route. Our passengers will soon benefit from four buses per hour on the Crook – Bishop Auckland – Darlington corridor throughout the day on Monday through to Saturdays.”
To celebrate the launch Arriva will be running a special £2.50 promotional return fare for anyone in the area who receives a pocket sized timetable through their door.
