Arriva have officially launched their brand new fleet of 18 Service 1 buses. You may have seen or travelled on one already but now it’s official- the route has been reinvigorated!
Forget running low on battery, forget being offline, and forget struggling to find space on board. Redesigning the way we travel by bus, USB charging ports are located on the back of each seat, with 4G Wi-Fi provided free of charge and the added top deck providing additional space for passengers. These double deckers are stylish and state of the art. The interiors are light, airy and upholstered in eco leather making bus travel never before look so good.
Whilst the aesthetics are to be admired, there is much more to these beautiful buses; the engine is new, acclimatised to deal with the issues we currently face with regard to climate change, as well as a brand new ‘stop-start’ technology which reduces fuel consumption by switching off the engine when not required, i.e. while stationary.
So the next time you travel by bus on service 1 travel congratulating yourself that you’re saving money, sparing up time to shop online or email colleagues, able to revive your exhausted technology and limiting your carbon footprint.
