Improvements to Green Line 758 service
The people of Hemel Hempstead who wish to travel to London are being urged by Green Line to climb aboard its fleet of coaches, which have recently undergone a major overhaul.
All of the five coaches that operate along the 758 service from Hemel Hempstead to London have been upgraded to newer vehicles, all featuring free Wi-Fi access for the first time.
The overhaul represents an investment by Arriva of more than £300,000 as part of its ongoing commitment to providing customers with a quality service and great value.
Linsey Frostick, Marketing Manager for Green Line Coaches, said: “With major sporting events taking place in and around the city this summer, there’s even more of a reason for people to be heading to London.
“Our upgraded coaches are a great way for people to get out and about, with the added benefits of free Wi-Fi, allowing passengers to access the internet, providing them with the perfect opportunity to look at their emails or carry out research, as they make their way into central London. By opting for coach travel, passengers are not only guaranteed a seat rather than having to stand in a packed train carriage, but great value journeys that also deliver excellent cost savings.”
The 758 route, which was a product of the deregulation of coach services, started on 26 September 1981 and today’s route remains virtually unchanged since the original launch. The route was the first Green Line service to serve housing estates and pick up commuters and was an immediate success. On the first day of operation, Nicholas Lyell QC, the then MP for Hemel Hempstead, travelled on the service along with 14 other people and after two weeks’ operation, the coaches were full.
Green Line offers great links to London from across Luton and Hertfordshire providing customers with great value and significant savings against train travel at convenient times.
