Closure of the Arriva depot in Burton
Start Date: 28/08/2016
Arriva’s last day in operation on the main part of the Burton network will be 27th August.
Arriva have sold the depot in Burton to Midland Classic, and will be transferring the majority of Burton town services to them.
Arriva’s last day in operation on the main part of the Burton network will be 27th August. However, we will continue to run routes X38 or 9/9A/9E/29A from our Derby and Coalville garages respectively.
One of our key concerns when discussing this course of action was the protection of jobs for those who work at the Burton depot, and we are pleased that the deal agreed includes the transfer of existing staff over to the new operator.
We remain committed to working with all those involved to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible, and that not only will the employee’s best interests be taken into full consideration, but that bus users throughout Burton will continue to benefit from affordable, quality transport services.
