Stagecoach Supports Standing up 4 Sitting Down Campaign

20 Mar 2019

 

Stagecoach South is proud to be supporting the Standing up 4 Sitting Down Initiative by placing stickers on their buses in Worthing to spread awareness of the cause.

 

The initiative was initially set up by the Anchor Hanover Group to improve access to seating in public areas for older people. 43% of people will not offer a seat on public transport, even if it was suspected someone might need it. Stagecoach is supporting the initiative by spreading awareness that seating should be given to those with a priority need on their buses with the hope that it will give older people the confidence to use public transport more often.

 

Stagecoach Marketing Manager, Stacey Churton says ‘It’s great to be supporting the Standing Up 4 Sitting Down initiative, helping to raise awareness to a very important cause and encourage more older people onto the buses. Here at Stagecoach we’re really passionate about supporting the community and improving access to those in need’.

 

Nicola Rouse, Team Manager at Anchor Hanover said “We are so delighted to have our local transport supporting the Standing Up 4 Sitting Down campaign, it’s a topic close to my residents hearts who often bring this issue to my attention. Now with the support of Stagecoach we hope this will encourage more people to be mindful of others when travelling on public transport and offer their seat to older people who maybe in need of one. 

 

The campaigns stickers will be on Stagecoach Buses in Worthing and across other public transport operators nationwide, where passengers see the stickers they should keep it in mind to give up their seat when someone who might need it boards.
