From its early holdings in Denmark and the Netherlands, Arriva developed a growth strategy across mainland Europe based on acquisitions and contract wins. Having significant positions in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Germany, Hungary, Italy, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Sweden, Arriva?s mainland Europe division had the highest turnover of the group?s three divisions in 2009. On Arriva?s acquisition by Deutsche Bahn the group?s German operations were divested in 2010. Published ready for Christmas, the 2009-10 Arriva Bus Handbook is substantially enlarged from previous years as the company has expanded its operations. Currently the largest book we publish at 272 pages it is well illustrated.
