Arriva Adds Some Sparkle to Route 6 in Milton Keynes

Date Posted:17/11/2015

Arriva Bus SapphireArriva The Shires is excited to announce the launch of Sapphire - a fleet of premium buses being introduced onto service 6, which runs between Lakes Estate in Bletchley, Central Milton Keynes and Stony Stratford.

Sapphire has been created especially by Arriva to offer customers a more luxurious way to travel, improving their connectivity and comfort along some of the country’s most critical commuter routes. Representing an investment of £300,000, these 12 sparkling single-deck buses, offering a host of high-tech features, will greatly enhance the customer journey and deliver a much needed boost to this already high-performance route.

From the free WiFi and charging points for mobile phones and laptops, to the on-board destination screens displaying up-to-date passenger information, these buses will keep passengers connected in more ways than one. Sapphire will also provide audio and visual announcements as the bus approaches stops along the route, making journey’s easier and more relaxing than ever before. Not only that, but passengers will now be able to travel in style thanks to luxurious high back coach seats offering enhanced space and comfort.

The fleet will officially be launched to the public outside the Xscape, Milton Keynes on Saturday 21st November. The event will offer opportunity to take a look around the vehicles, learn more about the service, and pose any questions to the dedicated Sapphire team.
