Following closely on the heels of recently announced fare rises, Arriva UK Bus has some better news for local customers — namely a new premium service, Sapphire, on Route 280, the Aylesbury-Oxford service.

Well suited to regular commuters, the new Sapphire buses have:

  • Newly trimmed, high back, E-leather seats to offer comfort and additional space.
  • Free Wi-Fi (to stay in touch with Haddenham.net !)
  • Mains power and USB points, ideal for charging mobile phones and laptops.
  • Full-size rear LED destination screens to display passenger information.
  • 'Next stop' audio and visual information.
  • CCTV for added security

Eleven vehicles, with nearly £400k-worth of refurbished improvements, will be introduced onto Route 280 from this Saturday, 20th July.

In addition to offering a better experience for customers, Arriva claim that the Sapphire service will also provide:

  • A reliable service, potentially as frequent as every 20 minutes, seven days a week.
