New Lubbesthorpe residents ArrivaClick update

There are currently bus driver shortages on the ArrivaClick service leading to a reduced level of service. However, the service continues to operate across the whole zone, 7 days a week from 6am to 11pm.

Bus driver shortages is a situation currently being faced by many bus operators in the country as we emerge from the pandemic and the end of furlough. It is not helped by delays in processing driving licences by the DVLA and the continuing need for some drivers to self-isolate, . Despite this, the service continues to be popular with a 5% increase in passengers and a 28% increase in requests for New Lubbesthorpe journeys in August (compared to July). The trip booking software continues to prioritise journeys to and from New Lubbesthorpe versus all other journeys. Arriva are taking steps to restore full service as soon as possible but this will take several weeks. More »
