Arriva makes cut backs in Derby

Arriva are making some changes to services in Derby from the end of October. The main changes are:

Route 5/5a - no evening service after 8pm, 7pm on Sunday. Route 7 no longer operates in the evening, so this will leave a huge area of Derby with no evening service.

Route 4 - will no longer serve Pride Park in the evening and Sundays - leaving Pride Park (including the park and ride) with no service at these times. The service at these times will also be hourly not half hourly.

Barton drivers strike over pay

Drivers based at Barton in Nottingham voted to strike on four Mondays 10th, 17th, 24th September and 1st October. Despite this all services operated in full last Monday, with few members actually taking part in the strike action. The three further planned strikes are still set to go ahead.
