The fleet consists of approximately 930 operational vehicles as of September 2012. A wide variety of makes and types are represented, although DAF and VDL chassis predominate, accounting for around 60% of the fleet, and over half of the fleet carries bodywork by Wrightbus. The fleet is about 80% single-deck and 97% low-floor. Arriva stated its intention to make its main routes serving Liverpool completely low-floor by 2008, and the whole of Merseyside by 2011.

Which I gaze on so fondly today,
Were to change by tomorrow, and fleet in my arms,
Like fairy-gifts fading away.”

their spars like burned matchsticks.”
