#lovemybus with Stagecoach West Scotland 

Love my bus is a new exciting project launched by Stagecoach West Scotland and Transform Scotland in 2019.


Throughout the project, we will share information on the benefits to health, reduced stress and improved relaxation from choosing the bus to commute to Glasgow for work and studies. Six local champions have been selected to share stories of travelling on our X77 or X76 Ayrshire to Glasgow services!

Meet our Champions

We have now selected our six #lovemybus champions! From exercising to and from the bus stop, having a cheeky snooze or meeting their future wife on board, you can learn all about why our champions #LoveMyBus here. Our champions will update everyone on what life is really like when commuting by bus to Glasgow. They are aged 25-45 and will feature throughout the campaign, sharing stories & experiences on X76 and X77.

Don't just take our word for it! 

Read the evidence submitted by an expert in this field, Dr Adrian Davis from Edinburgh Napier University who is a Professor of Transport and Health. 

His research tells us:

  • Walking to the bus can help everyone achieve daily exercise! Walking to and from public transport stops can help physically inactive populations attain the recommended minimum level of daily physical activity.
  • Daily active lifestyles, like a walk to the bus, are important! Population level efforts to increase non-leisure physical activity, particularly active transport, are greatly needed to help promote and maintain active lifestyles.
