One hundred new buses for Merseyside

Merseyside investment

Arriva North West has continued to invest in services across Merseyside to the benefit of staff and customers.

Earlier this year, 37 brand new double-decker buses entered into service across routes 10, 10A and 10B operating from the St Helens and Green Lane garages. Now a further 25 double-deck vehicles have been launched on routes 12/13 and 15, which serve Stockbridge Village and Huyton, respectively.

In addition, 12 new buses are due to boost the Speke depot’s 75 service via Halewood this summer, while six single-deck buses will join the 487 service in Neston later in the year.

Howard Farrall, area managing director for Arriva Merseyside, added: “New buses not only make a huge difference to our passengers in terms of comfort and reliability, but also have an impressive environmental impact.
“Arriva is committed to providing the best possible service for our customers, and we continue to invest in our fleet. We are delighted to introduce double-deck buses to these really popular routes, we hope our customers enjoy the view from the top deck!”

By the end of 2015, Arriva Merseyside will have taken delivery of an impressive 106 brand new buses.
