Give Bus A Go

09 December 2020

People who use the bus love the bus! Almost nine out of ten bus users told the Transport Focus Bus Passenger Survey they were satisfied with their most recent journey. Research also indicates that around a fifth of car journeys could well be made by bus. Yet many people donโ€™t view the bus as a transport mode of choice.

This campaign has been paused as the coronavirus pandemic resulted in general advice to not travel unless necessary.
