Over the last ten years Arriva has developed a unique position in mainland Europe, setting itself apart from other UK public transport sector peers. Arriva?s footprint has deepened and widened, with operations now in eleven countries. Management teams have been strengthened, further reinforcing the group?s unrivalled knowledge and experience, and the continuous development of a strong network of relationships which has been key to Arriva?s success. Across Europe Arriva provides passenger transport services in the Czech Republic, Denmark, Italy, Hungary, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain, Sweden, and in 2011 begins operations in Malta after winning a ten-year contract to provide scheduled bus services on Malta and Gozo. Our Arriva Bus Handbook reflects the significant operations of Arriva Netherlands, Arriva Denmark, Arriva Portugal and Arriva Italy, with smaller positions in Germany, Arriva Spain and Ariva Sweden with all fleets included in the book.
