Catch the Bus Week 2015
It now just a few days until this year’s Catch the Bus Week co-ordinated by Greener Journeys takes place from 29 June to 5 July. Over 160 organisations including all the major operating groups and many local authorities across the country are now understood to have committed their support to this celebration of the benefits of taking the bus.
Since our report in Bus and Coach Buyer 1330 (5 June 2015) many more organisations have announced special travel offers which will be available in support of the event. Leicestershire County Council is offering 50p travel vouchers for selected services run by Roberts Coaches, Paul S Winson and Centrebus plus discounted weekly tickets on Park and Ride services. Central Buses is reported to be offering free travel on its commuter service from Tamworth estates to Birmingham during the week and Transdev in Harrogate is running a ‘buy a day ticket on Saturday, use it again for free on Sunday’ promotion throughout June.
