Grab a bargain and enjoy 2 for 1 travel in Milton Keynes with Arriva buses this Black Friday weekend

Arriva is offering the chance to travel around Milton Keynes with a friend for free with its 2 for 1 day ticket offer this Black Friday weekend.

Friends and family can enjoy a day out and about in MK from Friday 25 November to Sunday 27 November for less using the special offer on Day Saver m-tickets.

With this latest offer Arriva is hoping to encourage people to switch from their usual form of transport and experience the comforts of bus travel, including relaxed seating, bus tracking on your phone, personalised timetables available on the Arriva app, and free Wi-Fi on certain routes.

Arriva area managing director (Shires), Maq Alibhai, said: “This offer allows more people to travel around Milton Keynes with friends for free and perhaps experience an Arriva bus for the first time.

“It’s a great time of year to get on the bus and avoid the overcrowded and costly car parks and traffic jams – as everyone takes to the roads in the run up to Christmas.”

Mr Alibhai said the ticket was designed to alleviate the stress of travel on a very busy weekend and was simple and easy to use.

“With the m-ticket you don’t need to print anything out and there is no change required – your ticket is literally in the palm of your hand.”

To enjoy the offer simply download the Arriva m-ticket app (available for android devices and iphones) and purchase the Bank Holiday 2 for 1 day ticket* in advance. You can then activate it before travelling and present it to the driver when you board.

To make the journey even easier customers can also take advantage of the Arriva travel app, which enables them to identify the nearest bus stop, the time of the next bus and which bus to catch to reach their chosen destination. Downloaders of the app can also receive real time updates to avoid waiting around and ensuring they maximise every moment of their day.
