Christmas and New Year service arrangements 2015

South East area

Arriva buses will be subject to alteration over the Christmas and New Year period to take account of the bank holidays, the effects of people staying indoors on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve and the reduced demand for our service4s during the peak periods while lots of people are taking holidays over the festive season.

The tabs below give details of the service levels that we wil be providing between Christmas Eve and 3rd January, with normal services resuming from Monday 4th January.

We also have a couple of pre-Christmas promotions to tell you about and these are shown on separate tabs.

In one we are allowing up to four children to travel with two adults that use the Family Day ticket is Kent, Surrrey and West Sussex and in the Southend, Rayleigh, Rochford, Castle Point and Basildon area.

The other allows five weeks' travel for the price of four when buying any four-weekly ticket between 7th and 11th December.

We'd also like to take the opportunity to wish all our customers a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year and we look forward to providing your bus services through 2016.
