3rd to 9th July marks the fifth national Catch the Bus Week – a shared initiative to raise awareness of local bus services up and down the country. Using the bus is a great way to get around whether that be for work, school/college/university, visiting friends or family or even just a great day out.

Buses are integral to communities across the UK and are the most widely-used mode of public transport. They carry millions of people to work and school every day, provide vital access to town centres and keep our roads moving, with resulting benefits for local air quality. But despite their major contribution to the economy, to the environment, and to our society, they are sometimes easily overlooked.

Five billion bus journeys are made annually within Great Britain with one billion of those being purely for work and commuting. By switching just one more car journey to bus each month, we can remove one billion car journeys from our roads which would result in a reduction of two million tonnes of CO2. Swindon's Buses provide great daily connections in Swindon and we are continually investing in more environmentally friendly buses to reduce our impact on the environment.

Catch the Bus Week is the chance to celebrate the bus and open more people’s eyes to the fantastic benefits of bus travel. We will be doing our bit in demonstrating that the bus is for everyone and helping the public understand how buses can help tackle problems like air pollution and congestion by keeping our Facebook and Twitter feeds up to date over the week with lots of great reasons to catch the bus!

So go on, why not give the bus a try?
