�1.1 million invested in public transport

Public transport has been given a million pound lift after six new busses were added to a company’s fleet.

Arriva has invested �1.1m in the busses which will replace decommissioned vehicles on the 100, 101 and 102 services between Stevenage, Hitchin and Luton.

Stevenage MP, Stephen McPartland, who helped launch the busses, said it was “fantastic news for passengers and another great investment in our town which has almost 26,000 passenger journeys a day.”

Linsey Frostick, Arriva marketing manager, said the investment demonstrates a commitment “to providing the best possible service to our passengers who rely on us each day to get them from A to B.”

She added: “We hope our customers will really notice the difference and make their journeys with us even more comfortable than before.”
