Arriva London Stamford Hill Garage [SF]...New HVs for the 73

Today I visited Arriva London's Stamford Hill Garage located just south of Tottenham in North London. This is one of two garages that has been speculated for closure by Arriva London as they try to cut down on their yearly budgets. However the reason I visited the Garage was due to the fact I gained some information that some HVs for the Route 73 had been delivered early.


The HVs are powered by the highly reliable and durable Volvo B5LH 5 liter Engine with hybrid electric technology. There are in fact 20 of these vehicles allocated to the Route 73 for the contract starting in October this year, numbered between HV27 - 46 they are the third batch of HVs that have been bought by Arriva. They feature gold advert frames a restyled rear end and Powerblinds as standard. I may add that these are possibly the most reliable Hybrid vehicles in London and are well worth their £330,000 price tag. With Go Ahead London set to get 16 of these vehicles early next year, lets hope Metroline follow suit.

No there are 51 Buses for the 73. Just these 20 are the Hybrid allocation for the route.
