We, the undersigned, would be awfully grateful if Arriva Leicester would consider using Adham Fisher's voice for its buses that have automatic announcements.

Born and bred in Leicester, which he always describes as "the greatest city in the world", Fisher has been around since the Midland Fox days. From red and yellow to mint green and purple. At school, he devoted much of his time to studying bus timetables, because he knew that was more important and where his destiny lay. His interest in transport caused him to be ridiculed by almost everyone he knew, and he would consider it the ultimate irony if some of those people, out of touch for at least fifteen years, were to sign this petition.

He rode on the vast majority of buses in the city and county in the early 2000s, and even forgave Arriva for discontinuing the 154, "one of those brilliantly mysterious routes that made Barlestone a little more interesting". In the early 2010s he was a Bus Ambassador for Greener Journeys, tirelessly campaigning to encourage motorists to take buses with the offer of free tickets, and defending Arriva robustly when faced with disbelief. 

He has gone on to ride on 200 London bus routes by himself in 24 hours, ride on all 593 of them with the Bustice League, and be invited to the world-renowned UK Bus Awards. Add to that his four Guinness World Records for visiting every station on metro systems, and his commanding of international media coverage. But his biggest regret is not making it from Leicester to Knighton, Wales, in one day because the Arriva bus from Bridgnorth to Ludlow was shown in the Arriva timetable as departing from the wrong stop. The plan involved a zero-minute change from a bus to a train at Nuneaton - something only Fisher could have executed - but he has been unable to attempt it again since. Therefore, Arriva sort of owes him for that.

Simply put, Adham Fisher is a legend. He is the best person to give his vocal talents to Arriva buses. And he'll do it for nothing.

This request terminates here. All sign, please.
