Get yourself 20% off a dayrider this Clean Air Day
3 weeks ago
We are marking Clean Air Day - Thursday 16th June - by offering discounted travel to people living in and visiting the area.
We are offering passengers 20% off a dayrider ticket* through the app so that you can leave your car at home for the day and catch the bus instead.
Just one of our double-decker buses could take up to 75 cars off the road, with a single decker bus taking anywhere between 30-40 cars off the road, helping reduce CO2 emissions by 45%.
Air Pollution is not just a growing concern for climate change, but it also has a negative impact on our health. Recent years have shown that breathing in high levels of air pollution can cause various respiratory diseases, including heart disease and lung cancer. In fact, studies have shown that air pollution can damage a child's cognitive abilities, increase an adult's risk of cognitive decline and even contribute to depression.
Anyone who wants to give up their car for the day and take advantage of all-day bus travel with a 20% dayrider discount, use the code CLEAN22 on our app.
In order to take advantage of this offer:
- Download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store
- Go to the Mobile Tickets section
- Select which zone you would like to buy a ticket in. View our zone map
- Click on the dayrider ticket for the zone you want to travel in.
- If you do not have an account, you will then be asked to create one - in order to store your ticket.
- Once you've created an account or logged in, add the discount code CLEAN22 in the discount code section.
- Select Buy Ticket, and purchase your ticket.
- This will now appear in Your Tickets, where you can activate it when you are ready to go by bus.
This means people can experience just how convenient and comfortable bus travel is here - and they can enjoy it at a reduced price on Clean Air Day.
We are committed to helping improve the quality of air we breathe here in Dorset, and we have been working on this in a number of ways - including investing in a new fleet of greener vehicles to serve our M1 and M2 services.
Buses have the potential to take many cars off the roads - and travelling with us has changed beyond recognition over recent years. Those who haven’t boarded our buses lately will be amazed at the enhancements we’ve made.
Our newest buses are more frequent, have more comfortable seating, offer USB charging points for smartphone and tablet users, and accept mobile phone payments, as well as contactless and tap on, tap off - and they sport the very latest Euro 6 low emissions engines.
We hope our Clean Air Day offer encourages more people to take the bus. If we can convert some car users, it could make a huge difference to the local environment in the long term, as well as helping ease the area’s congestion issues.
*This offer is only valid to buy via the app on Thursday 16th June. There is not alternative payment method. It is valid for any dayrider ticket, including children's dayrider tickets (a verification process will need to be followed) but not group tickets. The offer can only be used once per customer.
