From Sunday 15th February, we're making some changes to Services 7, 15, 63 and 81/81A in Teesside. - See more at:


Running from 29th June to 5th July, Catch the Bus Week is an industry-wide initiative being supported by sustainable transport group Greener Journeys, which urges people to try using the bus instead of their car for certain journeys.

Donning our giant green promotional foam hands through the North East we have been promoting the social, economic and environmental benefits of bus usage to passengers from across all walks of life!

Nick Knox, area managing director for Arriva North East, said: “Catch the Bus Week is a fantastic opportunity that helps celebrate all the benefits of bus travel. We are proud to support the campaign, and what better way to do this than by giving away free travel to encourage more customers to jump on board the bus this summer!”

To do our bit to boost the initiative we also gave away  free day saver tickets online throughout the course of the week; allowing more people than even before the chance to see for themselves just how easy, affordable and efficient bus travel can be.

Together with Go North East, Stagecoach, Connect Tees Valley & Local Motion we visited Middlesbrough Town Centre, Durham County Hall & Newcastle City Centre.
