Battling against the Beast from the East
The Beast from the East brought us freezing temperatures and thick snow. It disrupted road and rail networks, affecting many of our businesses and passengers.
And yet, we worked together to keep people safe, on the move and up to date.
Going the extra mile
There were many ways in which Arriva faced down the Beast from the East, with our employees often struggling to get to work themselves.
Chiltern Railways staff at Leamington and Warwick Parkway stayed overnight to keep stations open, clear snow with spades, and dispense grit to provide a near normal service.
Arriva in Kent supported local councils by running buses every 30 minutes through the night to keep the roads clear.
