Arriva North East is transporting Crofton Grange Estate to the future!

MAX X8 which serves Cowpen Estate has now been diverted to serve Bishopdale and Swaledale Avenue providing a new transport link for residents of Crofton Grange housing development.

So whether you are going to work, to the shops or just to catch up with some friends, the MAX X8 can now get you there quickly, comfortably and reliably! The service will run seven days a week with buses running up to every 30 minutes! This service features all MAX benefits including free wi-fi, luxury e-leather seats with head rests, and the very latest in journey planning technology!

To celebrate the new improvements to the area, Arriva staff have promoted the service by delivering leaflets around the estate which includes a free day ticket so residents can give the bus a go.

Stephen Humphrey, operations manager at Blyth depot, who was instrumental in implementing this change, said: “We are always exploring new opportunities, it was an easy decision to make a detour on the MAX X8 which has opened up access to 600 new homes giving customers a convenient transport option.”

Nick Knox, area managing director for Arriva North East said: “We’re constantly working towards improving the journey experience for our customers, so we’re delighted to have launched further improvements in this area.”
