A bus company wants High Wycombe residents to help name a fleet of buses which will carry passengers through the town.

Arriva buses are inviting suggestions for regionally-inspired titles for the single deck, low emission vehicles which it dished out £750,000 for.

The buses will be used to bolster routes that serve routes from Totteridge to Castlefield via High Wycombe town centre and Eden shopping centre.

And now bosses are putting out the call for new names to give them an identity and reflect the community which they serve.

Arriva’s general manager, Ken Hargreaves said: “We’re hoping that these new vehicles will make a real difference to our customers in High Wycombe.

“To make sure they truly become part of the community here, we wanted to instil some local pride in them by naming each one in honour of some the town’s most deserving individuals.

“We want to hear about your local heroes - the people or groups that make this community great.

“Old or young, if they have achieved something outstanding which you think is worthy of some real applause."

Winning suggestions will appear on the outside of each bus, and will also adorn a commemorative plaque inside.
