Free bus rides for dashers

ARRIVA is getting into the festive spirit by offering free transport to those taking part in the fifteenth annual Santa Dash in Liverpool this weekend.

For the second successive year, Arriva is offering free bus travel on services throughout Merseyside on Sunday 2 December to all those taking part in the festive 5k.

To claim complimentary bus travel both to and from the city centre, passengers boarding the bus must have their Santa suit and race number on show, or, after the event, their finisher’s medal.

Lisa Pearson, head of marketing, Arriva North West and Wales, said: “The Santa Dash is a great event that really unites the people of Liverpool for a day of festive fun, which is why we are supporting the city by offering free travel to all those taking part.

“The team here at Arriva will also be getting stuck into this year’s action, so we’re looking forward to seeing lots of red and blue Santas on board our buses and throughout the city on Sunday.”

The free travel offer starts and ends on Sunday 2 December.
