Partner Pack now available for Catch the Bus Month participants
Preparations for this year’s Catch the Bus Month are underway with the launch of the campaign Partner Pack from Bus Users UK.
The charity is calling on transport operators, local authorities, passenger groups and communities across the UK to get behind the campaign which runs throughout September. Its Partner Pack offers a range of suggestions for events, giveaways and promotions along with offers of support and supplies of the promotional ‘giant hands’ renowned for the event.
The Pack also contains a host of campaign materials including logos, graphics and posters in English and Welsh which celebrate the social, economic and environmental benefits of bus travel.
“We want the industry to get behind Catch the Bus Month and remind people of the huge benefits of bus travel to themselves and to their communities” – Victoria Walker, Programme Manager at Bus Users UK
Victoria Walker, Programme Manager at Bus Users UK is heading up the campaign, said: “This is a critical time for bus services with staff shortages and funding cuts, and passenger numbers that still haven’t returned to pre-Covid levels. Yet the need for affordable, sustainable transport has never been greater.
