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.
Not convinced? Don’t worry; we understand a bus company telling you to catch the bus is a bit... obvious.
So, instead of us telling you the benefits of catching the bus, what if we told you we’ve enlisted the help of a professor? Not a nutty one. A real life Professor of Transport and Health, from Edinburgh Napier University. His name is Professor Adrian Davis and he’s done a tonne of research and written reports on the benefits of catching the bus.

Still not convinced? Ok well, we’ve also enlisted the help of six #lovemybus champions - a mix of current bus and non-bus users, to give commuting to Glasgow by bus a go for one whole year.
They’re going to tell you what it’s *really* like to catch the bus. Are we nervous? Nope. We know our express services are top notch. Our luxury coaches, X77 from Ayr and X76 from Kilmarnock to Glasgow have comfy E-leather seats, free wifi, charging points and run every twenty to thirty minutes at peak hours... but we’ll let the champions tell you more about it all.
