Buying your tickets from the Arriva Midlands bus driver

You can buy single and return tickets and Day Saver tickets from the Arriva Midlands bus driver as you get on the bus. In some areas you can also buy Weekly Saver tickets on bus.
Pay cash to the Arriva Midlands bus driver as you get on the bus for single or return tickets. If you’re making several journeys in the day a Day Saver ticket may well save you money, and in some regions you can also buy Weekly Saver tickets from the driver.

The driver will also be able to advise you on the best ticket to get.

It’s a huge help to the bus driver if you are able to tender the correct money – particularly if he or she is running low on change. We regret that we aren’t able to accept £50 notes or card payments on the bus.

If you’re not sure how much your single or return ticket will cost you can find out from our customer service team.
