Arriva the Shires has taken the delivery of 22 buses in a multimillion pound investment.

Nine of the buses are for the 310 service operating between Ware and Waltham Cross, which have been branded as the “Lea Valley Line.” Another seven are for the 31 service operating between Luton and Dunstable, and the remaining six will be used on the 100, 101 and 102 services.

Luton MPs Kelvin Hopkins and Gavin Shuker were present at Arriva’s Dunstable Road head office to unveil additions to the fleet, while Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland helped launch the 100, 101 and 102 services. He said the buses were “fantastic news for passengers and another great investment in our town which has almost 26,000 passenger journeys a day.”

Linsey Frostick, Arriva the Shires marketing manager, told CBW: “This significant investment demonstrates we are committed to providing the best possible service for our customers who rely on us each day to get them from A to B.”
