New eco-friendly Arriva buses for Watford
Bus company, Arriva, launched ten new vehicles for Watford’s Service 10.
The buses, which were unveiled on Friday (March 1), will help to link Watford’s residential areas with employment districts, health services and leisure facilities.
The new buses are fully accessible with environmentally-friendly engines.
The new service will operate up to every 10 minutes during the day, with a weekly ticket costing £10. For more infrequent users there is also a 10 trip ticket for just £10.
Arriva’s Managing Director, Paul Adcock, said: "I’m delighted that we are investing in our network in Watford.
"This key partnership with Herts County Council is a great way of bus companies and local authorities working together to create a more positive experience for the customer."
Councillor Stuart Pile, Hertfordshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Highways and Transport, said: "This project is just one of many that the county council is currently investing in as part of the BigHertsBigIdeas scheme."
Councillor Pile said the scheme is a package of projects aimed at supporting local economic growth and reducing carbon emissions in Watford, Hemel Hempstead and St Albans.
