Arriva has unveiled plans to enhance its bus network in and around High Wycombe following recent issues with passengers.

Service revisions have been promised from January 7, 2024 after the company incorporated passenger feedback following a significant upgrade in September.

Matt King, network manager for Arriva outlined plans to improve punctuality and introduce later evening and Sunday services.

Mr King said: "We’ve already introduced a substantially improved bus network for High Wycombe and it’s great to have been able to continue to refine timetables based on what our customers tell us."

Within the revisions, improved connectivity for schools is on the agenda after two girls were left in tears when their bus didn't show up in High Wycombe. 

Passengers will also benefit from enhanced connections within the town, making travel and transfers simpler and more convenient.

Mr King added: "Customers told us that they need earlier connections from Totteridge and to Booker, so we're pleased to bring in these service improvements.

"We'll also be bringing later evening and more Sunday journeys on some routes in response to our growing customer demand."

Expressing gratitude to High Wycombe travellers, Mr King said: "We always appreciate the feedback we get from the people who use our buses, day in day out and we’re proud to say that we will deliver exactly what they want."

He added later that the changes represent the company's commitment to being the "most environmentally sustainable transport option of choice for everyone in High Wycombe and beyond."

Updates on the improvements can be monitored on the Arriva website.
