Greg joins Arriva to launch updated bus network and new routes

Greg, along with local councillors, visited the new Arriva depot in Tunbridge Wells to launch the new bus network which went live on Sunday 11 March.

Greg said:

"Many people rely on local buses to get to work, to visit friends and family and to go shopping so it's really important that we have reliable, regular bus services. Arriva has been listening closely to what customers want and has worked really hard to create a new network with improved routes. I'm delighted, for example, that the direct service between Tunbridge Wells, Paddock Wood and Maidstone has been restored. The number of buses to Tunbridge Wells Hospital, Knights Park, Showfields and Ramslye have also been increased which is great news. Arriva is to be commended for its commitment to the local community."

Oliver Monahan, Area Managing Director for Arriva Kent and Surrey, said:

"We were absolutely thrilled to have Greg visit our new depot and give us his thoughts on the network changes. The feedback of local councillors and our customers is not only important to the team here at Arriva, but is also the start of some brilliant service updates that we hope will really improve the passenger experience in the Tunbridge Wells area.

"We would like to thank Greg for attending today, it's great to have him on board in celebrating and promoting the improvements to local bus services."
