Arriva Hassle pt1 | October 18, 2005

Student Bus Passes.

Ordered a bus pass on the 9th. Only received it today, but I can’t used it as it has the sleeve missing.

A flaw in their ordering system lead to the delay. A flaw in their staff also lead to the delay (email regarding order should’ve been sent on 10th, wasn’t sent till the 13th).

Will be posting all emails when situation is resolved.

Past problems with Arriva.

  • Buses are regularly filthy (more so the Durham garage not the Tyne & Wear buses).
  • Seats are regularly uncomfortable (missing or worn padding).
  • Seats are occasionally not attached to bus (free floating, just plopped on the bench).
  • Drivers occasionally got things wrong (ticket prices, understanding what New Deal passes are for).

  2. Firstly, look at the date. The bus pass is long since expired.

    Secondly, that’s illegal.

    Thirdly, I think they’ve changed the format of the bus passes so you can’t just buy the third terms’ bus pass and pretend it’s the annual one.
