Will The Wednesfield Depot of Arriva Survive?!

Councillor Phil Bateman said “Its reported in the bus press that bus routes operator Rotala PLC  is to take on the majority of bus and train group Arriva Wednesfield operations in the West Midlands. The question is will the current bus depot be closed after the transfer of work & jobs takes place?”

The contracts being adopted by Rotala all expire on 21 October 2017. The estimated revenue for the remaining six months of the contracts until expiry is £600,000.

Arriva will retain operation of the 10A/B and 335 bus routes.
