Southend BID and Arriva Travel Club Scheme

Southend BID have collaborated with Arriva UK to offer a great money-saving travel scheme available to all BID businesses and employees.

If you, or members of your staff use Arriva buses (to travel to work or otherwise) then you can take advantage of the Travel Club Scheme which offers the cheapest possible way to pay for an annual ticket to use on Arriva buses in Southend - you can save £166.00 a year!


  • Payment by Direct Debit

  • Monthly tickets

  • No photo required

  • Unlimited bus travel every month in the zone(s) of your choice

  • No minimum contract - join and leave when you want with no penalty

  • Up to two children travel free with the ticket holder at weekends and bank holidays. You must select ‘paper ticket’ when signing up for the Travel Club

  • Never lose your ticket again - you can choose to have it delivered to your mobile phone with the Arriva UK Bus app if you wish

How the scheme works

It's a simple 2-step process to get your ticket, click here to be taken to our dedicated page on Arriva's website.

Step 1: order your ticket online

  • Complete the online application form by clicking the 'apply now' button - you will need your bank account details

  • Payments are taken on the 1st or 15th of each month

  • Please allow at least 2 weeks to register before the date of your first Direct Debit payment

  • For payments on the 1st, tickets are dispatched and commence on the 12th of the month

  • Payments made on the 15th are dispatched and commence on the 27th of each month

  • Please note the nearest Direct Debit date will be the default option to choose

Step 2: receive your ticket in the post each month or have an m-ticket delivered to your phone via the Arriva UK Bus app.

We hope that you can make use of this great offer, as the BID continues to work with organisations to provide excellent services for its members.
