Travelling by bus can help reduce stress and can be good for your health

It is a third less stressful to commute by bus than car and taking the bus can help achieve half the government’s recommended 30 minutes of exercise per day.

The bus is good for the economy and helps support local communities

Bus users make 1.4 billion shopping trips and spend an estimated £27 billion on retail goods annually. Every year, those bus commuters create more than £64 billion worth of goods and services.

Buses bring people together and are vital for an inclusive society

48% of the lowest income group do not have access to a car. Young people are more dependent on bus services than any other group - over half of 16-19 year olds are regular bus users. Concessionary travel schemes allow older and disabled people to get around - in 2013, they delivered more than 1.2 billion trips to 12 million pass holders.

It's greener to get about by bus

Congestion costs the UK economy at least £11 billion each year. If everyone switched just one car journey a month to bus that would be one billion fewer car journeys on our roads, and a saving of 2 million tonnes of CO2.
