Arriva is appealing for people to let their imagination run wild and redesign a bus from top to bottom.

Budding designers and art buffs are being invited to think of a bus as a blank canvas, and consider how it can be transformed into a work of art. The winning design will then be brought to life on a real Arriva bus.

Linsey Frostick, regional marketing manager for Arriva said: “We want people to come up with some really creative ideas for our Art Bus. The design could reflect your local area, or be completely abstract – it’s entirely up to you.

“This exciting project provides a unique opportunity for someone to showcase their talent to potentially thousands of people. We’re really looking forward to seeing what designs people come up with.”

Once the paint has dried and the gadgets have been fitted, the new-look vehicle will embark on a national tour, promoting the bus as a greener and cost effective alternative to the car.
