Arriva UK Bus – Post Lockdown Service and Ticket Update
We want to make sure students, parents and carers are getting the most cost effective ticket for travel, which come in the form of our direct debit schemes. The ticket is an alternative to local council passes and, for those students who are not entitled to a local council pass.
