Arriva London to be the first operator of the New ADL Enviro400H City Bus
Arriva London is always striving to be at the forefront of innovative ideas to make the customer experience more fulfilling. The recent announcement that they will be the first operator to take delivery of the brand new Enviro400H City bus from Alexander Dennis is a continuation of that philosophy.
In the Enviro400H City, alterations have been made to give the bus what ADL CEO Colin Robertson describes as a “London look,” The first 19 buses enter service with Arriva London’s new contract on route 78, between Shoreditch and Nunhead later this year.
Colin went on to say:- “Significantly, it also represents an evolution of Britain’s best-selling hybrid electric bus, our Enviro400H, which has a reputation second-to-none for fuel economy, reduced emissions, reliability and all-round performance.”
In the London specification, the 10.4m, two-door City will be capable of carrying 90 passengers. Underlining ADL’s work with TfL, the bus is fitted with their trademark ‘roundel’.
November is the planned entry into service date of the first Enviro400H City and Peter Batty, Commercial Director of Arriva London said: “We are delighted to be working with ADL and TfL on this project. The new look is stunning and brings together a whole range of passenger and driver advantages, including a wrap-around windscreen and glazed stairwell.”

Last week, we were delighted to welcome Michelle Salter and Donna Prendergast from the Sickle Cell Society to our Brixton garage, to meet with some of the givers and also record a few words about what the Payroll Givers' generosity means to their charity.
We have the ambition to become the mobility partner of choice, preferred by our passengers, partners and clients. Having a diverse, talented and motivated workforce is key to achieving that ambition.
We are always looking at ways to improve our green credentials and a recent initiative, part of our Destination Green programme across the business, at our North London Palmers Green garage is another illustration of this process.
Last summer, we were delighted to be awarded the contract from TfL to operate route W4 running from Oakthorpe Park Estate to Tottenham Ferry Lane estate, operating from Wood Green garage.
As part of our commitment to developing our business, we invest heavily in training for all of our staff to offer the great customer experience. We also look at other ways in which we can develop our relationships with the communities we serve, and allow them the opportunity of learning about our processes and to meet some of the team.
Over the past few months we have been working with TfL, conducting Accessibility Awareness forums at our garages.
