Titan takes X1 to the MAX!!

23 April 15

We have launched the X1 service into our successful interurban MAX brand!



TITAN the robot took bus travel to the MAX as he launched the brand new X1 buses which serve, Darlington, Bishop Auckland, Crook and Tow Law.

These 5 state of the art buses represent an investment of over £780,000 and feature, free on board WIFI, luxury high backed leather style seating and the very latest in journey planning technology for customers. They also include a team of dedicated drivers with enhanced customer service training.

Titan also visited local schools along the route including St Wifrids Primary in Bishop Auckland, Cockerton Primary in Darlington and Thornhill Primary in Shildon.

Nick Knox, area managing director for Arriva North East said: “The new MAX buses offer a great package of benefits for passengers. We believe they’ll be a huge hit with customers and we’re really looking forward to seeing them out on the road. We are constantly working towards improving the journey experience for our customers and we are confident that more people will see the benefits of bus travel and jump aboard.”

Titan the Robot added “It was great to meet the customers of the X1 route, taking this Arriva bus launch to the MAX!”

Service 1/1B combines with Service X1 between Darlington & Bishop Auckland to provide a bus up to every 15 minutes during Monday to Saturday daytimes.
