A fleet of 51 new Hybrid buses , complete with free wi-fi and USB charging ports, were launched in Merseyside recently.
To celebrate its new fleet of 鈥榞reen鈥?buses Arriva is today hosting a Green Day to show what the company says is its commitment to making the city a low carbon economy.
As part of Green Day, the Radio City Tower was lit up in green last night and today 2,000 tickets will be handed out around various locations in the city centre.
But in order to get your hands on one of these free tickets you will need to either work for one of the businesses below - or know someone who does.
The ticket vouchers are being given out to employees of local businesses inside Green Day goodie bags, to try and encourage more workers to commute via bus in Arriva鈥檚 bid to help reduce the number of cars on the road and reduce air pollution.
The day tickets can be redeemed on the bus for a Merseyside Day Ticket which is valid on Arriva services in the Merseyside area and must be redeemed by April 23.
All passengers will also be able to enjoy 50 per cent off all- day tickets valid in Merseyside when bought via the Arriva M-Ticket App with special promotional code: arrivagreen.
The celebrations will also consist of social media competitions where five lucky winners can win £100 of gardening vouchers. Entrants are being asked to share a photo on either Facebook or Twitter on a new Arriva hybrid bus using #arrivagreen.*
Andrew Clark, Group Environment Manager commented 鈥淧rotecting the environment and reducing emissions from our buses is top of Arriva鈥檚 green agenda and wider clean air strategy. Hosting Green Day is a great way to cement our commitment to 鈥楧estination Green鈥?and reduce the impact that our buses have on the planet鈥檚 resources.?/p>
