Stagecoach's Catch the Bus Week competition proves fruitful for college student

29 May 2014

The 23 year old student, who studies media at Witney College and will be going to study media at Bournemouth University in September, travels to college and work everyday on the Stagecoach Gold S1 and S2 services, as he finds it is a cheaper alternative to driving.

Stagecoach in Oxfordshire ran their Catch the Bus Week competition on Twitter, where customers had to spot a green hand sticker on the side of a bus and tweet in to @Stagecoach_Ox to be in with a chance of winning the £100 high street shopping vouchers.

Karen Coventry, Business Development Manager at Stagecoach in Oxfordshire said “Catch the Bus Week is designed to raise awareness of the benefits of bus travel and the Twitter competition was a fun way of getting people to notice our buses.”

Andrew commented, “As a frequent bus user, I thought this was a really cool competition. It was by chance that I spotted the green hand. My friend, Joe, and I were waiting in for a friend of ours to arrive in Witney on the bus. As the bus pulled into the stop my friend pointed at the side and when I looked up it was the green hand. I immediately tweeted in to say I’d seen it – I didn’t think I would actually win!”
