How our Saver zones work in Wales
We want to make sure that you get the best ticket deals available and we have a series of ticket zones where regular travellers can get discounted tickets.
A ‘Saver zone’ is the area in which you can use one of our money-saving Saver tickets. It might be the area in and around a town or a group of towns for example. You will be able to use your Saver ticket for any journeys wholly within that area. There will be bus stops designated as boundary points on bus routes that go beyond the zone and the Saver ticket won't be valid for journeys that go beyond those points.
So, for example, the Bangor Saver Zone covers all of the Bangor urban area plus surrounding places like Llanfairpwllgwyngyll, Caernarfon and Llangefni. You can use Bangor Saver tickets for any journeys on Bangor town services like routes 78 and 79.
But they’re also valid for use on out-of-town services as far as specified ‘boundary points’. This means, for example, that a Bangor Saver ticket is valid for use on routs 62 and 63, the Bangor – Amlwch buses, for any journeys in the section of route between Bangor and Pentraeth. You can see the various boundary points on maps of the Saver areas.
For people travelling further afield, beyond one of the local zone boundaries, the Wales area tickets could offer savings, and will allow unlimited travel on Arriva bus routes through Wales and include journeys from Wales into England.
If you still haven’t found the ticket zone for you look at the North West and Wales area – this covers the whole of the Arriva North West and Arriva Buses Wales networks.
