Arriva in Yorkshire


30 March 15

Local bus company Arriva Yorkshire is wishing customers an ‘appy’ Easter by sending out the Arriva Angels on services across the region, giving out chocolate surprises and letting customers know all about the very latest in travel technology.

The Angels, bus drivers with special duties, will  be encouraging more customers to ‘get appy this Easter’, celebrating the half a million milestone mark of downloads from Arriva’s innovative mobile app. The Arriva Bus app has set the benchmark for the bus industry by delivering the first fully national app to provide journey planning, real-time maps and service information to passengers on the go.

In the lead up to Easter all five Arriva Yorkshire depots will be getting involved across the region. The local services that will be participating in the campaign in the run up to Easter are as follows:

  • Heckmondwike Depot:   30th - 31st March - 268
  • Dewsbury Depot:  1st - 2nd April – 202/203
  • Wakefield Depot:   3rd – 4th April –110, 126
  • Castleford Depot:  6th – 7th April – 163/166
  • Selby Depot:  8th – 9th April – 415/416

Nigel Featham regional managing director for Arriva Yorkshire said: “We want to encourage more of our customers to use the Arriva app this Easter, and what better way to do this than by getting out and about speaking directly to customers. The app gives our passengers the opportunity to see exactly where their bus is on a live map, as well as offering the very latest in journey planning, it really is changing the complete journey experience.”
