Why not use Public transport?

Public transport can offer a cost effective alternative to travel by car, especially when you take into account the true costs of running a car – on top of the purchase costs, there’s fuel, tax, insurance, general maintenance and parking charges. It all adds up and with great deals on season tickets for bus and rail, there’s no better time to make the switch.

Travelling by bus can be made simple by using an online journey planner. Visit www.traveline.info and simply enter your journey start and end points and the times you wish to travel, and the online tool will do the rest.

Additionally, the UK Bus Checker app is a great way to access live bus information. Click here to download the app
