Daily commute pays off in Milton Keynes
Rosemary Sobolewski from Walnut Tree was selected at random to receive the prize after submitting four tickets from her journeys on the number 8 service, as part of a local competition recently held by Arriva.
She was presented with the tablet by Andrew Coleman from Milton Keynes Council at the MKube, Arriva’s central information point on Friday 27th April. Upon winning her prize, Rosemary said; “I’m so delighted with the win, I never win anything but as I use the bus I thought I may as well enter and look at me now!”
Linsey Frostick, regional marketing manager for Arriva, said; “The 8 bus route offers a great service for commuters to CMK and the Station as well as offering good connections to Kingston and Westcroft, so we wanted to give away a prize that would reflect this. Even without the prize, we are sure that other customers will see the benefits of catching the bus to work, school and on days out”.
In addition to highlighting how the 8 service can benefit locals, Arriva is also helping customers save money by inviting them to take its Fuel Challenge. By entering details about their daily commute into the online database, Arriva can determine how much money taking the bus to work can save.
