Our growth story

Arriva has successfully expanded to become one of Europe’s largest transport providers – and we are still growing. In all the markets in which we operate, we bring an unrivalled level of expertise and seek to develop strong, long-term relationships with all our partners.

Complete capabilities
We may be an international company but we are a local business at heart. With dedicated operations in 14 European countries we are able to quickly respond to change, especially new regulatory requirements or changing customer expectations. It is this unique capability that has seen us expand our operations significantly over the last 15 years.

Long-term success
We are proud of where we have come from and even more proud of our continual growth story. The key to this success is that every business we operate benefits from our experience in delivering a wide range of transport market solutions – from managing local bus services to running inter-city trains, delivering major multi-modal contracts to taking responsibility for highly specialised services, such as non-emergency ambulances.

Commitment to our clients
Our driving motivation is to deliver for our clients and our customers. Arriva aims to become a valued partner and trusted adviser to transport authorities across Europe. We bring a wealth of knowledge in supporting the transition as markets move towards competitive tendering. We are here for the long-term – helping to shape local transport markets of the future by offering innovative and customised solutions.
