Serving our communities
“It’s our support in the community that makes me most proud to work for Arriva. I jumped at the opportunity to become the driver for the charity ‘Storm bus’, transporting the local Hemel Storm basketball team to their away games – a massive deal for me as a keen supporter!”
Jon Keen, Bus Driver, UK Bus, Southern Counties
Arriva is about more than getting people from A to B; we’re about partnering with private, public and third-party sectors and local teams to care for the neighbourhoods we serve and the environments we operate in.
Making transport accessible
We’re keenly aware of the challenges faced by people with dementia, their families and carers. Arriva Midlands once again joined forces with the Alzheimer’s Society and was delighted to receive a Bronze for ‘Dementia Awareness’ at the 2017 UK Bus Awards.
CrossCountry entered into a three-year partnership with the UK Scouts Association, sponsoring the ‘Personal Safety’ Scouting badge to promote rail safety to young people. We intend expanding this participation across all our UK rail businesses in 2018.
We sponsored Serbia’s Homoljski motivi – a national annual festival preserving cultural tradition and personal identity. In Poland, we supported the nationwide ‘Send a card to a Hero’ campaign, honouring those in the 1944 Warsaw Uprising.
