Coronavirus Update Close

National lockdown restrictions are in place across England until 2 December but bus services are running as normal. You should only travel for work, education or other permitted reasons. 

In South Wales, all of our timetables will go back to what we were running before the 'firebreak' lockdown. There will also be some timetable changes to a number of Aberdare services to improve connectivity. 

The new tier system is in operation across Scotland, but if you need to travel, make sure you're up-to-date with what's happening in your area by checking the local government guidance.

We've put in place measures to allow you to travel safely including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can, keep your distance and take your litter with you.

Stagecoach encourage staff to get on their bikes for Green Week

02 Jun 2015

Thanet Depot Bus Shelter

Stagecoach kick-started its Green Week programme- an annual programme raising awareness of environmental issues among Stagecoach staff & passengers, by installing a brand new bike shelter for Thanet staff. The company hope to encourage staff to leave their cars at home and choose greener and more environmentally friendly travel. 


In the last few years, the company has seen a significant rise in employees travelling to work by bike, particularly in Thanet. Its 2014 Cycle to Work scheme had 50% more sign-ups than its scheme in 2012 and to date as many as 153 employees have signed up, a third coming from Thanet.
 
The shelter was installed at the Thanet bus depot on Monday 1 June, the first day of the Green Week programme. A series of other events will take place during the week to promote environmental awareness among Stagecoach staff and customers, including a Twitter competition on @StagecoachSE.

 Stagecoach in east Kent Managing Director Philip Norwell said: “All of us – individuals, businesses, communities and public authorities - have a shared responsibility to protect our environment. We know from our own experience of running bus services that climate change is increasingly impacting our daily lives through more extremes of weather. 

"We are committed to playing our part in facing up to the challenge. Despite the good progress we have made at Stagecoach in recent years, we know there is work still to be done. 

"We hope that Green Week will help give a real focus for how we can all work together to protect our planet for future generations. We need to make changes not just for one day or one week, but for the long-term."
