Local services across Colchester

Arriva’s network of services across the Colchester area provides handy links into town whether you’re going to work, school, college or shopping.

All our buses go to the heart of the town centre, serving stops in the Osborne Street, St. John's Street, Head Street, High Street and Queen Street area, at which you can connect with other buses to other local or more distant destinations.

Our great-value-for-money range of day, weekly and four-weekly tickets allow you to travel on as many Arriva buses as you like within the Colchester ticket zone area for the whole day, so the more you travel, the more you save!

As well as buying your ticket from Arriva drivers, you can buy them online, via your mobile phone and at local shops where you see the PayPoint or Payzone signs.

You can also now buy them through PayPal.
