Swindon Bus Support Local Shops This Christmas

Shop by bus this Christmas and show your support to our high streets

With the festive build-up in full force, we want to make it as easy as possible for you to get into town for your Christmas shopping. We're proud to offer an extensive network of bus services for the Swindon and the surrounding areas.  Take a look at our network map for your local service direct to the shops.

Saturday 7th December celebrates Small Business Saturday. This annual event encourages us to visit and purchase goods from our local shops and businesses. We all know it's easy to buy online but with a shocking decline in shops up and down our high streets, we're advocating this campaign to show our support. Whether it's the town centre, the Orbital or the Outlet Village you want to visit, we can get you there. Check out our timetable page for all the route details you need and jump on board with this fantastic festive campaign.

All our buses accept contactless payments and if you're travelling with the family we've got some great priced family tickets available too, often beating the cost of parking.  At weekends a family ticket for 2 adults and up to 3 children is just £5.20 for travel in our inner and outer zones.  All fares and ticket options can be viewed here

Not only can you show your support to local businesses by travelling by bus into the town centre, you can also do your bit by going green. As well as easing congestion and saving on parking, did you know that a single decker bus can take 40 cars off the road and a double decker up to 75!  

Many of our modern buses have Euro 6 engines which omit less NoX than a brand new diesel car.

Below is a handy list of Swindon's main shopping areas and what Swindon's Bus Company service you'll need:
