It’s time to think bus!

We’re sure you always have a carrier bag with you or enjoy your coffee from a re-usable cup. Taking the bus is a responsible choice too. We believe that the same effort should be put into reducing unnecessary car journeys as reducing single-use plastics. If catching the bus is something new to you, or you haven’t done it in a while why not give our journey planner a try, find out what bus to catch and see how much Co2 you could save in comparison to driving a standard petrol car.

Fuel prices have become more expensive recently too, so look out for our latest offer leaflet coming to a letter box near you with exclusive savings on mobile app tickets.

Wherever you wish to go, we ask you to THINK BUS and be part of a bigger change for the future and reduce your carbon footprint.  Whether you’re commuting alone in your car, socialising with friends, going to your place of study, or just a day out, our bus services can take you to most of these things.

If travelling with friends, we have group tickets available too.

If you travel regularly, you can buy period passes or multi-day tickets on our app or if you would prefer to pay as you go, all our buses accept contactless payments.

Example trips and Co2 savings:

  • Taking the bus from Fleming Way to the Orbital Shopping Centre will save 1,115g of Co2 - which is the equivalent of making 473 cups of tea!
  • Taking the bus from Fleming Way to Great Western Hospital will save 960g of CO2 - which is the same as keeping a fridge running on for 35 days!
  • Taking the bus from Haydon Wick to Park North will save 1880g of CO2 - which is the same as watching TV for 195 hours!
  • Taking the bus from Middleleaze to Fleming Way will save 1485g of CO2 - which is the same as keeping a lightbulb on for 418 hours!

Using the bus is a sustainable choice and can provide the perfect and affordable solution to reducing air pollution and easing congestion whatever your reason to travel.
