Annual Bus Season Tickets (Employer Travel Club)

Do you travel regularly on the bus? If so, spread the cost using an Arriva Season Ticket!!

Durham University has joined Arriva's Employer Travel Club which means all staff who use Arriva bus services in the North East and purchase an annual bus season ticket, can spread the cost of payment over the year. Through this arrangement, staff receive a discount on their annual bus tickets when pay monthly by direct debit.

There are many benefits to joining the scheme which include:

  • convenient monthly payments instead of paying an annual lump sum;
  • tickets sent direct to your home each month;
  • it's cheaper than buying a monthly ticket on the bus;
  • unlimted bus travel every month;
  • Free travel for up to 2 children when travelling with the ticket holder on weekends and Bank Holidays.

To purchase your tickets please go directly to the Arriva website.

It is a simple 2-step process to sign up to the Employer Travel Club:
STEP 1: Order your ticket online by choosing your zone and completing the direct debit information!
