Coronavirus Update Close

In line with the latest government guidance, we've put in place further measures in England to help customers practise social distancing. This includes limiting the available seats on buses.  

The safety of our customers and employees is our priority, so please avoid busy times, wear a face covering if you can, use contactless payment and take your litter with you.

#lovemybus with Stagecoach West Scotland 

We've teamed up with Transform Scotland, who are an alliance for sustainable transport, to bring you the exciting new project #lovemybus! There's loads of great reasons to catch the bus and we're going to shout them from the rooftops! Better for the environment? Tick. Saves you money? Tick. Better for your health? Tick!

 

Research

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.

Champions 

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.
