Scrap your car to get free travel

FREE public transport is being offered to north east drivers who choose to give up their cars.

Bus operator Arriva North East is offering 12 weeks of free travel as a reward for people who scrap their vehicles.

The company, which runs services across Northumberland, has teamed up with scrap car recycling scheme Trade Your Transport to provide the package.

Arriva Marketing Manager John Fozzard said: “We think Trade Your Transport is a fantastic new scheme and what could be better for Arriva than to offer people who no longer have their car 12 weeks worth of free travel?

“We believe this is the perfect initiative for Arriva to support as we are committed to providing alternative transport to the car, helping to reduce pollution and congestion in towns and city centres.

“By partnering with Trade Your Transport, we can offer an alternative method of transport in the form of this special travel deal.”
