Cardiff Bus unveils special bus in celebration of Pride Month

Cardiff bus has revealed its special-edition Pride bus as it celebrates Pride Month.

The bus will be seen across the streets of Cardiff sporting a livery decorated with the progress pride flag and pride-coloured hearts.

The bus operator has been taking part in the Pride parade since 2017 as part of Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend, and to continue this tradition the new bus has taken to the road in memory of Jason Anthony, a former driver at Cardiff bus who passed away earlier this year and who proudly drove the bus at previous parades.

Cardiff Bus is committed to its equality, diversity, and inclusion policy and proudly stands for and celebrates the LGBTQ+ community in Cardiff and the Vale as well as within the company.

Dave Jurich, a Cardiff Bus driver, said: “I can speak from personal experience and proudly say that Cardiff Bus has been most supportive of the LGBTQ+ community. The new bus which has been unveiled will allow us to celebrate Pride with our customers and show the local community that they are supported by us as a company.”

Managing Director, Paul Dyer, said: “We are so proud to be unveiling our Pride bus and celebrating the LGBTQ+ community in South Wales as well as within Cardiff Bus, not just during Pride Cymru’s Big Weekend, but all year round with our new dedicated bus. 

“We’re extremely proud of our diverse workforce who work to uphold our equality, diversity, and inclusion policy and support each other, as well as those within our wider community.

“We’ve taken part in Pride Cymru’s parade for many years now, and there is a huge sadness throughout the company that Jason will not be driving the bus as he has every other year, but we hope that our brightly coloured new bus that will be driven in his honour will bring some happiness to all who knew him.

“From all here at Cardiff Bus, we would like to wish everyone a very happy Pride month!”
