Arriva London's Brixton garage helps launch Catch the Bus Week
Catch the Bus Week is a nationwide campaign - spearheaded by Greener Journeys - aimed at raising awareness of the vast economic, environmental and social benefits of taking the bus as well as encouraging everyone to give bus travel a try.
Arriva London's Brixton garage hosted the recently appointed Buses Minister, Jesse Norman, to mark the launch of this year's Catch the Bus Week. He was joined by Arriva UK Bus Managing Director Kevin O'Connor and Greener Journeys CEO Claire Haigh, along with colleagues from Arriva London.
Jesse Norman said:
"Catch the Bus Week is an important initiative, and I'm pleased to be launching it. Buses are vital for connecting people, communities, homes and businesses. I warmly encourage commuters to try the bus this week."
Arriva London carries over one million passengers a day in London, and is always looking for ways to improve its customer relations and encourage more users. For more information about Catch the Bus Week, please visit www.catchthebusweek.co.uk.
