Arriva North West is to introduce a £1 evening single fare offer to support local businesses, boost the night-time economy and encourage more people to use buses for their journeys.
The new fare will be available from tomorrow, Friday 2 July, to 31 July 2021. The £1 fare will be valid for any single journey on any Arriva bus in the Merseyside Plus ticket zone after 7pm each evening until the last bus and can be bought on board buses or in advance via the Arriva UK Bus app and website.
Passengers who buy tickets bought onboard are encouraged to purchase them using contactless payment or, if using cash, by paying the exact fare. You can find more information and the terms and conditions at arrivabus.co.uk/pound-fare .
Arriva Area Managing Director, Howard Farrall said, “We are proud of our local network. Ensuring our customers’ safety and comfort whilst on board continues to be our priority, we have taken many steps to ensure this, if you haven’t travelled with Arriva recently, you can find more information about bus travel here. We’re looking forward to welcoming more customers on board to travel safely and affordably, helping to reconnect our towns, cities and local communities.
”We know how much the pandemic has impacted the UKs night time economy and we hope that by introducing this £1 evening fare, Arriva can also help support local businesses across the region – by making it easy and more affordable to get out and about and enjoy the evenings. So, whenever you’re ready to head back out, we’re here to get you where you need to go!”
