New Buses for Arriva’s North West Services

Five brand new state-of-the-art buses have been added to Arriva North West’s North Liverpool services. The new vehicles will offer users modern, environmentally-friendly travel with passenger comforts such as free Wi-Fi and USB charging points.

The vehicles continue the influx of double decked buses on services in Liverpool, with the 55 service being the ninth route operated by Arriva on Merseyside to be converted from single deck to double deck operation in the past two years alone.

The new buses will have E-Leather seating, CCTV screens, complimentary Wi-Fi provided by Icomera and USB charging points. This will ensure that passengers can stay connected whilst on board. These features are now standard on all new Arriva North West buses, as part of the Liverpool City Region Bus Alliance agreement with Arriva North West, Merseytravel and Stagecoach Merseyside. The new buses are also fitted with stop start technology – which can cut fuel consumption by 10%, particularly when the bus would otherwise be idling at a bus stop.
