The ticket isn't working

Hopeless app on Android, keeps crashing. Works better on iOS, but says the code is not valid

Doesn't seem to work in Telford, despite the fact the one and only company that run buses here are Arriva :\

ok this is getting silly now. Day one was fine with my little 3" Alcatel . day 2 no problem my Samsung 4" core prime... day 3 the daughters iPhone. I'm stuck now on day 4 using a 10 inch tablet. I feel a bit daft showing screen to driver but thats gonna be nothing compared to tomorrow when I get on with my 32" smart tv and plug it into the buses 3 pin mains socket so I can power up the app to show my ticket. bejezzus. the things we do for a bargain these days......

Does anyone know how to log out from paypal after purchasing the ticket on the app? I tried to log out by clicking my paypal account but it just purchased another ticket. How can i sign out of pay pal in the app? I tired sign out from the arriva bus app but still my account is in there.

Probably due to a member of staff not washing their hands properly

I think these deals have been on the back of parking/bus/coach tickets around the country for years, especially South London and Kent. Has nobody ever noticed before?!?!

Cartakeback collected my Nissan Micra which was beyond repair and only good for scrap.
£140 in my pocket. Not bad for a small car that was 17 years old with over 110k on the clock and knackered.

What will a scrapyard give for a car generally?



Varies a lot, and depends on the car. I once scrapped a Citroen AX, which is mostly plastic, and the guy who hauled it away was not happy. I think a big saloon can get above £200. It has fallen back a bit recently. Do ring around, I got different prices from different scrapyards last time, and you should get more if you can take the car in rather than have them collect it.

Useless for those over 60 (who have a free pass anyway). I have a scrap car, but am waiting for a better price.

I take it this deal would really only be beneficial for people who's cars really are ready for the knackers yard?
I mean why would I trade in my £3.5k BMW for £235 of tickets....?

Not voted either way as I'm sure it could be a good deal for people in the situation I've described.....

its the same here. arriva are the only ones in redcar so you just have to lump it. prices to up to cover wage increases (drivers have gone on strike several times & think they are on £8/hr now!) & fuel increases but wont drop prices when the fuel went down :roll: plus all the buses are knackered and are cast offs from northumberia/newcastle.

well i'm gonna be trying a far more reliable & cheaper service on friday....... bicycle! a straight 5 mile path all the way to work and will save atleast £700 a year while gtting fit! :whistling:

i only take 10x20min bus journeys a weak but in the last week have had 2 buses not turn up, 3 buses break down (1 of which was a replacement for 1 that didnt turn up, which had broke down also!) 4 buses that were late & 3 that went early! (this is early morning buses which constantly go atleast 5mins early!)

if you complain you get replies from arriva from all over the country! EXCEPT arriva north east! aparently they are a bit inundated with complaints! LOL just got a letter this morning from arriva liverpool saying that they are sorry and that my complaint has been passed to the concerning manager who will reply within about 10 days........ which then means the end of it as you get NO reply from arriva north east!

The monthly cost depends on your region and seems to vary up and down the uk.
But the local bus here is usually £12.50 p/week approx £50 per month.
So it's quite a saving buying the monthly pass online at £33.75.
Price also includes FREE p&p.
