BUS users in Northumberland are being offered the chance to become part of Arriva North East’s new quality control drive.

The company’s Ambussadors will receive a free, 4-Weekly Saver ticket and be tasked with rating their overall bus experience when using m-ticketing technology.

More than half a million journeys have now been made using mobile ticketing on Arriva buses.

John Fozzard, Marketing Manager for Arriva North East, said: “Since the launch of m-ticketing we have seen a steady increase in the number of customers choosing to use their phone to purchase tickets.

“Now we want to recruit people to try out the service and provide feedback.”
