We're phasing in improvements to our online shopping experience.

Back in the summer we told you about the first phase of our improvements to our ticket sales facilities.

Now we're excited to be able to tell you that all our Arriva Connect smartcard tickets are available through our new online outlet.

All you need to do is visit our new online smartcard shop, register to set up your new account and start buying your Arriva Connect smartcard tickets.


Please note that if you're buying a ticket on somebody else's behalf, for example a parent buying for a student or scholar, the new registered smartcard account must be in the name of the cardholder who will be using the bus, not in that of the person buying it.

If you already have an Arriva Connect smartcard that you bought through the old system you will need to re-register it in the new system.

Remember that new registered accounts must to be in the name of the cardholder who will using the ticket, not in the name of the purchaser if that is somebody different. For data security reasons we are not able to transfer your data across and it will be securely deleted from the old system.
