Simplified Fares for Children & Young People
You asked - we've delivered!....
We are pleased to announce the simplification of child fares in the North East and the introduction many great value tickets for U19’s. The new fares will be introduced on the 3rd September and will be available online, via the M-Ticket app or can be purchased on board from the driver.
From the 3rd September all child fares on Arriva North East buses are valid up to their 16th birthday and the Young Persons fare is extended up to their 19th birthday.
As part of the change on the 3rd, a number of new tickets are being introduced. A complete package of young person day and weekly tickets will be introduced across the network as well as 15 week and academic year for students and young people up to their 19th birthday in each fare zone area.
Tickets will be available online, via the Arriva M-Ticket and can be purchased on board from the driver. The new weekly tickets will provide children for example with all day travel from as little as £1.49 a day*.
As part of the launch, customers can also win great prizes such as cinema tickets and restaurant vouchers simply by purchasing the new tickets via the m-ticket app during September.
The new eligibility for young person’s fares follows discussion with the local authorities, Stagecoach and Go North East who are offering similar discounts
*£1.49 a day is based on the Darlington Child weekly ticket priced at £10.40
