Statement from Arriva London on protecting drivers

An Arriva spokesperson said:

“The safety of our passengers and colleagues is Arriva’s number one priority. In hindsight, the language used in a recent notice to employees was unclear and does not reflect our continued determination to keep our drivers safe. We have since taken the notice down.

“To abide by social distancing rules, we are asking customers in London not to sit in the seats nearest to bus drivers. We have clarified with our drivers and depot staff that tape can now be used to restrict the use of the front two seats closest to the driver.

“We’re also making enhancements to ensure the protective screen between drivers and passengers provides even higher levels of protection.
 
“We continue to closely follow and monitor public health advice to adjust our approach as and when needed.”
