This September is catch the bus month and you can make a difference by catching the bus to work, for leisure or school/college at least once a week improving local air quality reducing congestion and providing you to other communities across the local area.

One of the most sustainable forms of transport, a double-decker bus can take up to 75 cars off the road and switching just 1 journey in 25 to the bus would save 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. Buses also reduce social isolation and improve health and wellbeing.

Over the last five years we have invested into our fleet of buses, with new single and double decker buses now out on the local roads, with all new buses including next stop announcements, USB charging on board and they are a whole load greener, making bus travel easy and environmentally friendly for all ages.

The benefits of going by bus!

There are so many benefits to getting on board with us including:

Tackling loneliness & other social benefits

Buses are central to the fabric of UK society, helping to connect people and alleviate feelings of isolation. Buses help local communities to thrive by keeping local people connecting and strengthening community ties.

Health & wellbeing

Travelling by bus can be a less stressful way to travel and frees up valuable time. Did you know that walking to the bus stop can, on average, help you achieve half the Government's recommended 30 minutes of exercise per day? Taking the bus frees your hands and your head, allowing you to catch up on life admin, read a book or play games on your mobile.

Economic

The bus is good value for everyone! Buses help tackle congestion, which costs the UK economy at least £11 billion each year. Did you know that more than 1 in 10 (11%) of commuters would have to change jobs or leave the job market completely if bus service ceased to exist? 

Environment

It’s greener to get around by bus – buses help tackle air pollution by taking cars off the road. One fully loaded double decker bus can take 75 cars off the road and if everyone switched just one car journey a month to the bus, there would be one billion fewer car journeys on our roads, and a saving of 2 million tonnes of CO2. 

Buses serve a cross-section of society and keep people connected with friends, family, education and work opportunities and essential services - get on board with us this month and we look forward to welcoming you!
