'My name is Phil Johnson, I currently work for a company called Groundwork North East & Cumbria. Groundwork is a environmental charity, who assist our local community. My current role is Customer Service Advisor. My role involves assisting people of all ages, with any barriers that they may have.
I first contacted Arriva, about 5 years ago, as we were spending a lot of money of client travel, either for job interviews, coming into our centre or anything else. I decided to contact Arriva as they were the main bus company in my area. I rang Arriva to enquire about possible schemes they had to help us reduced our spend. I spoke to Leeanne Coatman at Arriva, who explained they had just started a new scheme called travel passes, which they were just testing. I spoke to Leeanne regularly over the phone and by email, to explain the advantages of the travel passes and how to order them.
At first I ordered a batch of single tickets, to see how it worked with our clients. At first our clients struggled grasp how to use them, but they got use to them.
Since then, I have continued to use the Arriva tickets with great success. We have noticed that our spend has gone down a lot, since we started using the vouchers. I would definately recommend the scheme to other companies. I would also like to thank Leeanne Coatman, for her help and guidance over the last 5 years. If I hadn't spoken to her, I don't think, we would still be using the tickets now.'
Youth Team Customer Service Advisor
Groundwork North East & Cumbria
'We deliver the Prince's Trust Team Programme and as part of the course our students attend a two week work placement. We provide them with financial support for getting to and from their placements by covering their travel costs. Providing cash and ensuring that we get receipts back has proven problematic so the vouchers offer the perfect way of ensuring tickets and money aren't lost.'

'I use the Arriva travel scheme on a monthly basis when ordering annual tickets for my colleagues, it’s a great scheme which saves my colleagues money and time. The ordering process is very easy and the tickets usually arrive within a day or two and any lost tickets have been replaced the following day. Leeanne and Amy provide a great service and are always on hand to help with any queries I have.'
