Because of The Bus

Our new ‘Because of the Bus’ video features real passengers from Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, who explain the vital role bus travel plays in their daily lives.

Because of the Bus, these local residents can stay connected with friends and family, discover their local area safely, enjoy a stress-free commute to work and reduce their carbon footprint.

We love hearing from our passengers about the positive difference bus travel makes to them, so it’s wonderful to be able to bring those stories to life with our new Because of the Bus video. We are passionate about putting our customers first and are delighted to give them a voice through the initiative. We hope it will encourage more people to stay connected, reduce their carbon footprint and discover their local area safely using our services.

Whether you’re travelling to reconnect with friends and family, commuting to work or college or doing your bit for the environment, just sit back, relax and leave the rest to us! Plan your next journey here

Tony, Local Radio Presenter

Because of the bus, I no longer need the car!

"I rely on the bus because it helps me get into Bedford for work. I recommend that other people use the bus because the Stagecoach app is very easy to use. I couldn't get around without the bus!"
