Arriva have advised driver industrial action is going ahead from Sunday 6th January.

A reduced service WILL run, including the ED1, ED2, ED3 & ED4 services at the start and end of the day (however the lunchtime service will NOT run).

Arriva have advised special bus timetables will apply. They do not underestimate the inconvenience that the disruption which the industrial action called by Unite the Union will cause to their customers across this area. They will be operating emergency timetables for Arriva bus services in Co Durham, the Tees Valley, East Cleveland and parts of North Yorkshire between Sunday 6th and Saturday 12th January 2019.

Details of these timetables, including the ED1/2/3/4 services, are available by clicking these links below:
