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.

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.

Ratings and Reviews
As a transatlantic visitor and short time user of the app, it has taken me little time to accommodate myself to its workings.
Only the need to have a separate app for ticket purchase creates any sense of bafflement for this user.
It could be better
I like the features. They just don't always work. One complaint is the bus times are often wrong, so you think you're going to catch a certain bus, but it's actually due 10 minutes later.
Useless for Northern England
All these bus apps are London-centric. If you are anywhere else they will be fairly useless.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
