Get your Christmas on in Leeds!

16 December 16

The Christmas countdown is well underway and everyone was getting into the Christmas spirit yesterday when we landed in Leeds with our Arriva Elves and Santa Claus! To thank our customers for choosing us this Christmas, we hosted a unique Santa’s Grotto with presents for all! There was lots of festive fun with Christmas music, a snow cannon, photobooth fun and a hoverboard performance! What’s more customers were given the chance to get their hands on a 241 West Yorkshire Day Saver!


So, what's stopping you?! Hop on board to discover some of the best festive treats on offer this year in and around Leeds!

We will transport you to all of the festivities for just £4.80 a day, which will give you unlimited travel across the whole of West Yorkshire. We also have some brilliant weekly and family tickets available too. A family of 5 can travel from £2* per person per day!
