Important service information

Last reviewed 11/08/2020

Following further government advice that people in England who are unable to work from home should now return to work, we have increased many services in the North East.

We will continue to monitor our service levels in line with demand and ongoing advice from the government and public health bodies.
If you have any concerns about travelling on board our buses, please view our safer travel page here.
Following the Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps announcement – from the 15 June 2020, face coverings are to become mandatory on public transport across England.
From the 24 July 2020, face coverings must also be worn when inside transport hubs in England, which includes bus stations, interchanges or travel shops.
Arriva Bus continues to work with the relevant government authorities around further guidance and we will publish any updates on our website and social media channels.
