  • Bus Driver

    Location: High Wycombe

    Our drivers help so many of our customers to get from A to B easily.

    Customers depend on our drivers to be safe, friendly and reliable.  And they depend on them to help with local knowledge and directions.  It’s a responsible job.  That’s why we reward our drivers well.  If you feel you’re good with people and have excellent driving skills, then a rewarding career helping our customers get from A to B could be perfect for you.

    At Arriva, we have modern buses that are as easy to drive as a car – only bigger.  If you’ve never driven a bus before, don’t worry; we can train you to obtain your PCV licence, your Certificate of Professional Competence (CPC) and route-learning.  Our drivers normally work five days in a week, including weekends and varying shifts.

    If you would like to work for Arriva as a bus driver you must have:

    • A full UK or EC driving licence
    • Minimum of two years driving experience in the UK
    • No more than 3 points on your licence

  • The eastbound [Aylesbury bound] diversion for service 280 from The Plain roundabout in Oxford to St.Clements via Cowley Road will end at 15:00 on Sunday 1st February and buses will return to normal route and the normal bus stops will be re-opened and the temporary stop removed.

    Then from 06:30 the following morning, Monday 2nd February, the section of St.Clements westbound [Oxford Rail Station direction] between Dawson Street and The Plain roundabout will be closed for two weeks. Service 280 will divert by turning left into Dawson Street then right into Cowley Road and ahead onto The Plain roundabout. No bus stops are affected this time and the right turn into Cowley Road will be controlled by temporary traffic lights.

    Drivers should NOTE that although we have used Dawson Street before for planned diversions and again this time, that under no circumstances must this ever be used as an emergency diversion route as Dawson Street is normally blocked off at the junction with Cowley Road by bollards and potted trees!

  • In association with the current “improvement” works at The Plain in central Oxford, St.Clements will be closed in two stages – one for each direction, as follows:


    From Monday 19th January from 0630 – for two weeks until 1st February: St.Clements street closed eastbound between The Plain and Dawson Street – service 280 to divert eastbound [towards Aylesbury] via Cowley Road then fourth left into Jeune Street then right at the top back into St.Clements and normal route. Note the junction of Jeune Street and St.Clements will be controlled by temporary traffic lights, parking suspended in Jeune Street and the exit into St.Clements will be modified [work on this taking place today]. We will be un able to serve our stop at St.Clements and a temporary stop will be used instead, just forward of the current “second” stop used by the 4 and 13 services, so drivers should look out for confused passengers wanting the 280!


    From Monday 2nd February to 15th February – for two weeks, St.Clements westbound towards Oxford Rail Station, will be closed between Dawson Street and The Plain – service 280 to turn left into Dawson Street and then right into Cowley Road and back onto The Plain and normal route. No bus stops affected. To enable this diversion, Dawson Street will be made one-way, parking suspended and some potted trees removed!


    Should the first phase finish early and St.Clements eastbound re-open before 1st February then the second phase will NOT commence early – this will not happen before 2nd February I have been told.


    After St.Clements re-opens, Cowley Road then Iffley Road will close and though this will not affect the 280 directly, increased traffic along St.Clements and dis-orientated motorists can be expected! The in April overnight resurfacing will take place over 2 to 3 weeks of the whole area – with various closures including the need for us to use Iffley Road and Cowley Road on certain nights but full details when we have confirmed dates.

  • Due to a “Christmas Event” Thame High Street is to be closed on Friday 5th December between midday 12:00 and 22:00.

    Service 280 should operate via Bell Lane as per diversion for Thame Fair. 

    Service 40 should use North Street in both directions and turn at the roundabout by the Police Station/cricket ground and layover at the bus stop in North Street just after the junction with Wellington Street.

    Services 120, 123, 124 should use Bell Lane and North Street, laying over in North Street and turning if required at the roundabout by the Police Station.

  • Princes Risborough High Street and Duke Street are closed for the annual Christmas lights switch on – on Friday 5th December.

    The closure is deemed to be from 15:00 for the rest of the day – however last year we had problems with the event being set up earlier in the day and I therefore suggest we do not use the High Street after midday.

    So from 12:00 for the rest of the day, the 300 [and 120/121] to observe the stops on New Road.
