Arriva Sapphire Route 280

The new Arriva "Sapphire" service on route 280 from Aylesbury to Oxford has a new "Sapphire" style timetable & route guide effective from 21 July 2013, but I understand that the new buses will be in service from Saturday 20 July. In addition, there is an A3 multi-fold leaflet folded long-ways with details of the route and fares and voucher worth 8.50 for a free day ticket. Whilst the timetables ought to be generally available, the leaflet with the free ticket may only be available for the promotion on Friday/Saturday 19/20 July in Kingsbury Square at Aylesbury, near the Bus Station. Some "Sapphire" mugs and pens were also being given out.
