Is taking the bus the ‘green’ option?

Why should I get the bus?

There are lots of reasons to take the bus, instead of getting the car out!

  • Less stress – let our highly trained, experienced drivers battle through rush hour traffic, whilst you sit back and relax!
  • Don’t waste time – when you’re driving, all you can do is drive. When you’re on the bus you can read a book, text your friends, catch up on the latest news online, revise for that exam, have a nap, chat with your neighbour, gaze out the window and daydream, or even get some work done (if you must!).
  • Speed cameras? Parking wardens? Road rage? None of these will worry you!
  • Fly past those rush-hour queues of traffic as you sail up the bus lane.
  • The phrase ‘MOT’ will never strike fear into your heart (and your wallet) again.
  • We’ve got loads of discounts and special offers on fares, so there’s no need to pay full price.
  • You won’t have to dread sudden and expensive car breakdowns.
  • Driving round and round a car park looking for somewhere to leave your car is a thing of the past – our buses will drop you right into the town or city centre.
  • You can be happy knowing you’ve helped reduce congestion and emissions in your local area.
