Catch the bus week 2016

Stagecoach is joining forces with Greener Journeys and other local bus providers to launch a major drive to get the public out of cars and onto the bus.

The initiative, which will run for a week from 4th July, will see leading bus companies across the country encouraging their local communities to ditch their cars in favour of a greener mode of transport; their local bus network. 

The average bus commuter spends 6 hours on the bus every week. Just imagine what you could do with an extra six hours a week*, you could read 52 books in one year, learn to speak French or you could watch every episode of Games of Thrones, Mad Men and Breaking Bad in a year! So give the bus a try and make the most of your time on board.

Congratulations to all our Catch the Bus Week Winners:

Shahieda Erkamp - a 4 week Fife megarider+ ticket
