Coronavirus Update Close

We all need to do whatever we can to protect each other from Coronavirus, so in line with the latest government guidance, there are measures in place to help you to travel with confidence, including limiting available seats on buses and enhanced cleaning. Unless you’re exempt, you must wear a face covering when using public transport, throughout your journey. Please avoid busy times, use contactless payment where you can and take your litter with you. For up to date information see our Coronavirus page.

There are temporary timetables in Wales between 25 October and 9 November due to a two-week Welsh Government lockdown.


Who is Swindon’s top bus driver?

03 Oct 2014

Swindon Travel Choices has joined forces with Stagecoach West and Thamesdown Transport to seek out Swindon’s top bus driver.  

As part of National Customer Service 2014, which takes place across the UK between the 6th and 12th October, Swindon Travel Choices are asking Swindon’s bus users to nominate the driver they feel has given great customer service. 

This may range from a cheerful welcome, good advice, skilful driving or an unexpected act of kindness- whatever it is, the aim is to find the best bus driver from Stagecoach and Thamesdown. The top bus drivers will be awarded with £100 High Street shopping vouchers.

To nominate a driver, go to and say who you would like to nominate (driver numbers appear on your bus ticket, or you can ask them for their name) and why they deserve to win.

A panel of judges will announce the winners on Monday 13th October 2014, and there are chocolatey rewards for everyone nominating a driver too.
