Travel benefits for Apprentices
If you’re 18, or over, live in a London borough and are in the first year of an approved apprenticeship, you may be eligible for an Apprentice Oyster photocard.

We have some great discounts for those aged 18 and under, including our £1 flat single fare. View our guide below to see which ticket best suits you.
If you are 18 or under, you can take advantage of cheaper fares on the bus or on our app without the need for any form of smartcard/ID – although if you are at the older end of the age range, it is advised that you keep your college ID or another form of ID on you in case you are asked – otherwise you may have to pay full fare.
Does your organisation offer Apprenticeship schemes? Would you like to help them travel to their placement for less?
Arriva North East has introduced a new Apprenticeship Travel Scheme where the organisation/employer/training provider can become a member and pass more affordable bus travel onto their apprenticeships.
Arriva North East will then send a new ticket out to the apprentice each month. NO administration required from the employer/organisation. For more information about how your organisation can join the scheme please contact us.

If you are a resident of Gloucestershire employed in a Gloucestershire apprenticeship and are aged 16-24, you may be entitled to a free Thinksmart bus pass for journeys to and from your placement.
Your bus pass allows you to travel free of charge for up to 100 journeys on local bus services in Gloucestershire.
