The Arriva Bus company would like to take this opportunity to inform you of the options they have available to support you in getting your child to school safely.

Arriva’s Student & Child Saver tickets provide your child with reduced priced bus travel costs on their journeys to and from school and they can also use their pass to travel in the evenings, at weekends, and throughout all school term holidays.

You can spread the cost of the saver ticket over affordable monthly payments with our easy-to-use direct debit payment system. It’s simple to apply and there’s no set-up fee or minimum contract, which means you can cancel your direct debit and stop your ticket at any time should your circumstances change. This makes it the ideal way to get reduced price bus travel without paying upfront.

To arrange your Direct Debit and for further information please follow the link below: www.arrivabus.co.uk/monthlytickets.

If you register now, you can delay your payments to commence in time ready for the start of the new academic year. Once they have received your payment, your ticket will be sent to you and you won’t need to worry about paying bus fares again, safe in the knowledge you have saved money through their Direct Debit scheme.

You can choose to receive your pass by post or if you download the Arriva UK bus app onto your child’s phone we can send them an m-ticket. Child Saver tickets are valid for pupils up to and including year 11 Student Saver tickets are available for anyone aged 16+ in full time education

Matt Allman, Headteacher, said: “The saver tickets and apps look like a good option for parents from Arriva and we would urge all parents to consider whether they are the best option for 2022-2023.”
