A BUS company is offering 16 weeks free bus travel to people in Ellesmere Port who give up their car.

Arriva Buses, which operates routes across the North West, has partnered with Trade Your Transport and is offering four four-weekly tickets as a reward to people who take advantage of the initiative.

Trade Your Transport is a new scheme which offers rewards should car owners choose to scrap their car. Arriva has teamed up with the programme to offer an alternative form of transport in the form of a special travel deal.

Debra Mercer, marketing manager for Arriva North West, 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 16 weeks free travel?

“We believe that 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 town and city centres.

“By partnering with Trade Your Transport we can offer a reward that is worth much more than the scrap value of the car, and very useful for people who need to travel.”
