£1million investment in new ‘mini’ buses for Macclesfield and Winsford
Following a £1million investment, Arriva North West has launched nine new eco-friendly ‘mini’ buses in Macclesfield and Winsford, as part of a wider initiative to help the local community.
The new, smaller buses have been adapted in size to suit the routes which they will operate on, where congestion can be heavy and roads are often narrow. The new buses will also provide customers with a more efficient and eco-friendly service, helping to reduce fuel costs and emissions.
The 22 seater buses will feature e-leather seats, wheelchair access, free onboard Wi-Fi and USB charging points on each seat, and will service route numbers 2, 3, 4, 6, 9 and 21 in Macclesfield and the number 2 and 4 in Winsford.
In addition to the launch of the new ‘mini’ buses, Arriva donated £500 worth of food, refreshments, sleeping bags and clothing to the Treehouse Food Kitchen in Macclesfield, which helps local homeless and disadvantaged people across Cheshire East.
To celebrate the arrival of the new buses, Arriva hosted a launch event outside Macclesfield Town Hall on Saturday 8th July, where the public enjoyed a hog roast, competitions, stilt walkers and other family-friendly activities.
