Arriva North West is a division of Arriva that operates bus services around North West England. It consists of four companies: Arriva North West Ltd, Arriva Merseyside Ltd, Arriva Manchester Ltd, and Arriva Liverpool Ltd (the last of which, confusingly, is primarily responsible for services in and around Bolton).

Arriva North West as an operating division (distinct from the registered company Arriva North West Ltd) came into being in its present form in January 2009, when Arriva Buses Wales was separated out from Arriva North West and Wales.[1]

Arriva North West has a fleet of buses numbering just under 1,000.

Fleet

The fleet consists of approximately 987 operational vehicles as at May 2009 [2], consisting of a wide variety of makes and types. The fleet is about 84% single-deck and 70% low-floor. Arriva stated its intention to make its main routes serving Liverpool completely low-floor by 2008, and the whole of Merseyside by 2011.[3]

The Dennis Dart SLF, along with its smaller variant the MPD, still makes up a significant part of the fleet, accounting for over 200 vehicles; there are also a diminishing number of older step-entrance Dennis Darts, currently numbering around 50. More recently, the VDL SB120 and SB200 have become the standard single deck types, the majority featuring Wright Cadet, Commander and Pulsar bodywork; between them, these types now outnumber the Dart SLF. Other new deliveries during 2007 and 2008 have included ten Alexander Dennis Enviro300, four Alexander Dennis Enviro200 Darts and ten Optare Solos.

On the double-deck side of the fleet, 23 Alexander Dennis Enviro400s entered service on routes through the Mersey Tunnels in January 2009, displacing Volvo Olympians. The Enviro400s are the first vehicles in the fleet to carry the interurban variant of Arriva livery, apart from a solitary demonstrator. Previously, 30 Volvo B7TL with Alexander ALX400 bodywork had entered service on services between Liverpool and Garston in 2006, these being supplemented by seven mid-life DAF DB250 with similar bodywork from Arriva London, and three Dennis Trident 2 with Plaxton President bodywork acquired with the Blue Bus business in Bolton. Volvo Olympians currently form the majority of the non-low-floor double-deck fleet.

Unusual vehicles in the fleet include the Ikarus 481 and Polaris bodies on DAF SB220 chassis, acquired with the Blue Bus fleet. The seven Polaris bodies account for a majority of those imported. Until October 2008, twelve Neoplan N4016 were operated on service 18A from Liverpool to Croxteth Park, and were the only vehicles of their type in Britain.

A number of articulated vehicles are due to join the fleet from Arriva London in the near future. They are to be based at Green Lane, suited by its drive-through maintenance pits, and Speke depots.
