We are excited to unveil 13 brand new buses on the 1, 5, 5A services between Darlington and Bishop Auckland. The state of the art buses feature striking new livery, comfortable e-leather seating, and the very latest in journey planning technology. There are many great features on board too, including usb charging ports, free WiFi and audio/visual next stop announcements – great if you aren’t familiar with the area or are new to bus travel.

The buses were officially unveiled at Bishop Auckland Market Place on Tuesday 13th February. Staff were on hand at Bishop Auckland Market Place with information and giveaways. Customers enjoyed a valentine’s balloon display, FREE chocolate fountain, and were given the chance to win a hotel stay at Redworth Hall hotel.
