Arriva falls at the first fence

This from the Commuter...

Last year Eye ran a piece about John McCririck helping XC promote their services to the Cheltenham Festival.

Well he's back again.

And this time there is a highly professional video making use of some top quality Powerpoint effects.

Poor old John - he looks as shaky as the franchise he is promoting.

UPDATE: This from Steve Strong...

Perhaps Arriva should would have been better spending McCririck's fee on installing WiFi across its fleets, as it promised when it won the franchise.

According to the shaky TOC this should have been completed by 11th November 2009 (two years into the franchise).

Good to see that Department for Transport is on the case with this clear breach of a franchise commitment.
