Titan the robot launches improved 415 bus service

Titan the robot took travel to the MAX when he relaunched Arriva's York to Selby bus service at the Designer Outlet.

Route 415, which serves Selby, Fulford and York, will run using improved vehicles and a more frequent timetable from today. The state-of-the-art buses feature a fresh new exterior, ambient interiors, luxury high backed leather style seating, free WIFI and the very latest in journey planning technology for customers.

The Wi-Fi service was added to the MAX buses following an award of £320k of government funding to City of York Council. The scheme is funded by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS), as part of York's status as one of 22 SuperConnected Cities.

Nigel Featham, regional managing director for Arriva Yorkshire said: “The new MAX buses offer a great package of benefits for passengers.  We believe it will be a huge hit with customers and are looking forward to the buses hitting the road in Yorkshire.  The launch was marked with an event at York Designer Outlet, which showcased the buses and for a little added pizazz, the well-known Titan the robot performed.  Our Arriva angels were also on hand giving out free day tickets to customers, encouraging more people to jump on board!”
