Taking MP to the MAX!
We were pleased to welcome MP Paula Sherriff, to our Dewsbury Depot last week.
The meeting was organised to give Ms Sherriff a ‘behind the scenes’ look into Arriva Yorkshire’s local bus operations. The day included a guided tour of Dewsbury Bus Station and depot, as well as a trip on the brand new MAX buses, which have free on board WIFI, comfy eleather seats and power sockets to charge phones and tablets.
Paula Sherriff, Dewsbury Labour MP tweeted: “Thank you to Arriva Yorkshire for an interesting and informative meeting today, including a trip on the new luxury Max bus.”
Anna Weeks, general manager for Dewsbury Depot said: “We were delighted to welcome Ms Sherriff and give her an insight into how we run the local services in Dewsbury. It was great that Ms Sherriff shared our enthusiasm for our latest innovations too, we took a trip out on one of our MAX buses and demonstrated the Arriva Bus App, which tracks all our buses and feeds live information direct to our customers. It was fabulous to see Ms Sherriff’s passion for the local community.”
