Student Travel 2021-22

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As we approach the end of Summer term Arriva would like to take this opportunity to inform of the options, we have available to support you getting your child to school safely during the next academic year. We provide frequent and reliable bus services across the region; all our buses are Covid-19 secure and undergo enhanced touchpoint cleaning every day

Arriva’s Student & Child Saver do not only cut your bus travel costs to and from school, but the same ticket can also be used to travel at evenings, weekends and throughout all school term holidays. You can spread the cost of our saver tickets over affordable monthly payments using our easy-to-use direct debit system. It’s simple to apply, there’s no setup fee or minimum contract required, which means you can cancel your direct debit and stop your ticket anytime should your circumstances change.

To arrange your Direct Debit and for further information please follow the link below:

To ensure delivery of ticket in time for the start of the new Academic Year we recommend registering as soon as possible.

Once you have your bus pass, you won’t need to worry about paying bus fares again, safe in the knowledge that you have saved money through our Direct Debit scheme

You can choose to receive your monthly pass by post, or you can download the Arriva UK Bus app onto your child phone, and we can send it there.
