2004 Arriva Bus Handbook

Availability: In stock

£10.75

Quick Overview

During 2003, Arriva completed its purchase of Transportes Sul do Tejo by acquiring the Barraqueiro Group?s remaining 49%. It also began to operate its Danish rail franchises in Mid and North Jutland. In London, in line with the Mayor?s strategy for Transport in London, which included the introduction of Congestion Charging, the Arriva London fleet has seen growth of over 200 extra buses together with rapid fleet renewal. The fleet is now close to being entirely low-floor. To accommodate this growth, Stamford Hill depot was reopened, the former tram shed at Brixton brought back into use in February 2003, and facilities elsewhere expanded. The changes are reflected in our 2004 edition.
