Great value freedom for under-16s for 5 weeks this summer with Arriva
At last, the long, hopefully hot, days of summer are in sight.
Exams are nearly finished and, across the UK, parents are starting to grapple with the challenge of how to keep their boistrous broods entertained during the summer holidays.
Young people are pondering how to get out and about with their friends without having to rely mum or dad or grandparents for lifts.
Arriva has the answer:
Child Under 16 Summer Pass
Available in selected ticket zones across the country this exciting new Arriva bus m-ticket offer goes on sale from Monday 1st July 2019.
