Arriva and Liverpool BID Company have joined together to offer savings on local Arriva bus travel!

How it works:

Pay even less for your travel each week by purchasing a yearly ticket but paying for it monthly with a direct debit. There’s no set up fee and no minimum contract, which means that you can cancel your direct debit at any time should your circumstances change.

This makes it an ideal way to get reduced bus travel for the year without having to pay upfront. Payments are taken on the 1st or 15th of each month. The nearest direct debit date will be the default option available to choose.

Please allow at least two weeks to register before the date of your first direct debit payment.
