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.

PUPILS GREEN THEMED ARTWORK EXHIBITED ON BUS EXTERIOR

27 Jul 2017

  •  Primary school pupils green themed artwork is showcased to thousands of people a day on the back of a bus running across Basingstoke town
  • Pupils receive a school visit from Stagecoach

Artwork created by pupils from a Basingstoke School has been displayed on the exterior of a local Stagecoach Bus running across Basingstoke and the surrounding area.

As part of Stagecoach's recent Green Week, pupils at Great Binfields Primary School were asked to design posters on the theme of what green means to them.

Operations Manager for Basingstoke, Martin Gibbon said: "We received some very colourful entries. It's great to see young children embracing local and global environmental issues and taking practical steps to reduce their carbon footprint so I'm extremely delighted to be able to display their artwork on our bus."

Stagecoach’s annual Green Week aims to raise awareness of environmental issues among staff and passengers through a series of events. It is currently in the third year of a five-year plan to reduce its own carbon footprint as a business.

Since the inaugural Stagecoach Green Week in 2009, the bus group has made significant strides in its drive to take action on climate change.

The school received a visit from Stagecoach to present the vehicle to the young pupils and to thank them for their hard work.
