Journeo extends trip with major UK bus operator

Arriva UK Bus

Journeo plc, the Ashby-based provider of information systems and technical services to the transport industry, has announced a year-long extension to its framework agreement with Arriva UK Bus – the UK’s third largest bus operator outside of London.

The extension – the second since the deal was struck in May 2019 – is expected to generate £1.1m in revenue.

Journeo will continue to provide high-definition CCTV systems and nationwide engineering support to Arriva, as well as technical design, new technology evaluation and project management services for new and legacy vehicles across the company’s fleet.

The Leicestershire firm expects the majority of the income generated through the agreement to be recognised this financial year.

The contract is separate to Journeo’s 3-year fleet-wide SaaS contract with Arriva UK Bus.

Russ Singleton, CEO of Journeo plc, said: “We have been working with Arriva UK bus since 2010 and are delighted to continue this long-standing relationship through this framework contract extension. Our safety critical CCTV and associated on-board IT systems are designed to assist Arriva in protecting their passengers, drivers and members of the public and enhance the passenger travel experience.”

Last month, Journeo revealed it enjoyed a 35% spike in revenue and a 29% uptick in its gross profits last year.
