Arriva launches Boxing Day bus service in Luton and Dunstable

Arriva is running bus services in Luton and Dunstable on Boxing Day for the first time after a trial service proved successful in 2015.

The service will allow people in Luton and Dunstable to get to work, go shopping or get out and about to meet friends and family during the festivities.

A Sunday service will run from Luton to Houghton Regis via the Busway and Dunstable (A service) and from Luton to Parkside (Z service).

Buses will also run from Stopsley to Luton (number 12), Luton town centre to Marsh Farm (number 27) and Luton to Dunstable (number 31).

Arriva Luton general manager, Linsey Frostick, said: “We’re excited to be launching Boxing Day services in Luton and Dunstable and hope they’re going to prove popular with shoppers and those wishing to meet family and friends.

“It’s such a busy time of year so why not avoid the stress of parking and congestion and try the bus?”
