What about existing local bus services?

If we are unable to provide you with a train service or a replacement bus, there are existing local bus services that you may be able to use.

Arriva buses - can I use my Northern ticket?

As you know we are part of Arriva. Because of this, Northern customers will be able to use their rail tickets on Arriva Bus services (including Yorkshire Tiger) on 13 March to make journeys they would otherwise have made by rail.

To find out more about Arriva Bus, please go to the Arriva Bus Journey Planning webpage. You can also download the Arriva Bus Journey planning app from all major app providers.

If I use another bus operator’s service, can I claim my fare back?

Unfortunately this is not possible. If you have a travel card, such as the Metro Card, you may well be able to use this on bus services – check the terms and conditions of your ticket.

Where can I get further information about service buses?
