Happy Birthday Oskar!

13 February 17

Our Selby drivers made 6 year old Oskar’s birthday wish come true this month!

Bus loving Oskar has been in recovery from a kidney transplant, and found comfort in visiting Selby Bus Station to ride around on our buses with his Mum. The drivers and Inspectors at the depot developed a friendship with Oskar, so much so that they pulled together to transform one of Oskar’s favourite buses into a ‘party bus’, so he could celebrate his birthday in style with all of his family and friends.

The drivers at Selby decorated the bus for Oskar with balloons and gave each of the children a goody bag full of Arriva gadgets. They even programmed the front of the bus to read ‘Happy Birthday Oskar, six-years-old today!’ Oskar was then taken on a tour around the town, arriving in style at his bowling party. What’s more, the drivers even organised a birthday cake for Oskar to be made at Lola’s Garden Café, in Selby!

Everyone here at Arriva Yorkshire is really pleased that Oskar enjoyed his birthday bus ride. Everyone at our Selby depot put a lot of effort in to make sure his special day was a great success. Oscar is a regular customer of ours and often travels on our MAX 415/416 buses into York. Being a local bus company, the community is at the heart of everything we do, and this event was one way to thank Oscar and his Mum for being such loyal customers of ours.
