The official Arriva Bus App has a range of features designed to make it easier for you to get around on regional Arriva buses in the UK. Whether you want to know the live departure time of the next bus, where the nearest bus stop is, or how to get to your destination, the Arriva Bus App is for you.
Since launching in late 2013, the app has been downloaded over 1 million times across all platforms and is being used by Arriva customers on a daily basis. When things are unfortunately not running to plan, customers are using the app to know when and how we can still get you to your destination. You can also use it to find out which day saver pass you require for your journey and even purchase it as a mobile ticket, or simply contact us using your preferred method.

This will help you plan how to get from A to B. It can detect where you are and plan from there, or you can tell it where you want your journey to begin. It will work from postcodes, bus stop name, or place names.

This will default to your current location, but you can set it to show any starting point, and it will show you a map of your route with the buses actually moving along the route.

Ratings and Reviews
Whoever updated this app recently, should never be allowed near a computer again.
The app used to be good, not perfect by a long stretch but still useable and helpful. But now that it has had its most recent update it is horrendous. Minor things like the font being completely off and all of the GUI being ugly to read isn't even important. What is important is how the bus stops no longer show what time the bus is coming, but instead opt for a "8 mins away" style. This on paper may seem like a good concept, however anybody with a brain would think to put the actual time that bus comes beside it. But no. You have to click on the bus, then scroll through all the stops and find your stop just to see time it comes. This makes the app so much less efficient for its actual purpose. Not only is the "8 mins away" style extremely inaccurate so you will end up missing the time anyway, it doesn't help people who are more than a 10 minute walk from the stop. This is a complete embarrassment for apps everything and I hope it's sorted. #FireWhoeverMadeThis
Trust the Arriva Bus Travel App!
Couldn’t live without my Arriva App!
It never fails to allow me to make a travel search plan throughout the whole of Hertfordshire exclusively for me! It really is fantastic & the greatest travel tool to get you precisely on the right bus at the right time for wherever you want to go! I really don’t know what I’d do without this invaluable travel companion!
With Arriva by your side you really don’t need a car anymore! Also it’s a darned sight cheaper at my ripe ol’ age than running your own car these days anyway!!!
The Drivers are all nice too! Even when they’re having to battle with all the traffic all the time, every day of the week!

Anyone rating this app lower than 3 stars is doing a disservice to Arriva: this app is great, albeit it not perfect. The load times are bizarrely long and sometimes the UI doesn’t function properly or at times is in German, but other than the slight insignificant occurrence or inconvenience, the app itself is revolutionary. Now you can finally see exactly where the bus is with pinpoint accuracy and you additionally can plan your journey ahead of time within the app itself. This is honestly a life saver since I use public transport almost every day, being a schoolboy and whatnot.
