Arriva in the North East

No clock watching with the Frequenta 63 service!

10 August 16

Arriva North East has launched its new high frequency Frequenta 63 service. The service showcases striking new livery and provides an enhanced cross-town link as well as ease of travel further afield with quick and stress-free connections onto MAX and Sapphire services. 

The launch event also celebrated the opening of our brand new Redcar Travel Shop, whilst celebrating VIP guest, Alex Carmichael for 50 years’ service with Arriva, who travelled back to his early years and arrived on a vintage bus. The public were invited to the celebratory launch to experience live magic, brand new bus tours and a free brunch. There was also loads of freebies and giveaways on the day.

Here at Arriva North East we are delighted to have launched further improvements in Redcar including our brand new Frequenta 63 service and travel shop. We are confident that these improvements will ensure that more people will see the benefits of bus travel and jump on board. 


It was great to also celebrate Alex’s 50 years’ service! It is great to give back to the employees and communities that act as the building blocks to Arriva’s success, which is why we are constantly working towards improving the journey experience for our customers.


Service 63 operates up to every 10 minutes Mon - Saturday
