Frequently asked questions

1. Who can buy a Student Saver?
The Student Saver is available to all full time students who use Arriva bus services and attend university or college in Yorkshire, and hold a valid NUS card or have a university/college ID number. You must be 18 years +. Pay once ride many? Paying for every bus journey you make is hassle you can do without. You get on the bus, have to fumble through your pockets for change, pay the bus driver, take your change...A Student Season Saver at the start of term means you can ride as many times as you want without the hassle of daily payments.

2. Why don't I just pay when I get on?
For frequent or long distance travel the Student Saver can offer the best value deal on the Arriva Yorkshire network. It can be used any time, any day (including DalesBus services that are operated by Arriva. They cannot be used on DalesBus services provided by other bus operators.), so you can travel to and from college/university in the day and go out at night. With no time restrictions and with weekend travel included, the student ticket is by far the cheapest and best way to travel regularly on Arriva buses.

3. On which Arriva buses can I use my Student Saver?
The Student Saver is valid for travel on Arriva Yorkshire bus services within Yorkshire.
• For cross-boundary journeys the additional fare must be paid.
