Arriva UK Bus App
By HaCon Ingenieurges. mbH
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
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 750,000 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.

1. Trip Planner
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.
2. Live Map
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.
3. Bus Times
It will either use your current location or you can input a different bus stop to start from, and it will tell you the time of the next busses buses from that bus stop.
This will link you through to the Arriva m-ticket app, which will enable you to buy tickets on your mobile phone.

What's New in Version 3.0.11
“Minor updates & fixes.”
Well it works....just!
Does what it needs to do but only just. Crashes a lot, bizarrely needs to 'reload' just when you're waiting to get on a bus frequently. I don't always use the bus - depending on my fitness etc (back problems). So I deleted the apps (why they can't combine them I don't know), then re-installed them - now you would think that my ticket history, name etc and payment details would have been saved wouldn't you? No - I had no payment details and ticket history and there isn't an option to 'sign in' just one to register - how basic is it to have an option to sign in to a company that you have previously registered details with? Anyway I'm bored now so that's it!
Don't even know where to start.
Terrible, terrible app. Tells you a bus is two bus stops away and yet your standing there for another 10-20 mins but the app is telling you it's been and gone. Didn't realise buses had cloaking devices. The attitude on most of the drivers stink. I have literally fell off a bus before because the driver only just slowed down to open the doors to allow me off. Need to have a serious word with their staff. The absolute worst bus company I have the unfortunate displeasure to ride with to work. Would boycott them if not for the face only one bus, an Arriva bus, allows me to get to and from work and the fact that I am just another insignificant expendable customer who's £900 a year on travel wouldn't be missed. Disgusting. Would give it no stars if possible.
this is app is perhaps the worst excuse for 'getting where you want to be on time'. The apps 'live map' is about as helpful as getting a person with no arms to handwrite a novel; it never loads, never shows you your journeys and cannot locate bus stops even if you were two feet away from it. To say the least this app has over 100 bugs in it that Arriva for some reason can't be bothered to patch because they much prefer money over customer service. That'll probably explain why their buses never show up, their extortionate bus prices and rude drivers. Don't bother getting the app - save the money you would spend on the bus and buy a car from eBay, it'll probably be 99% more reliable than this bus company and lousy excuse for an app.
