Catch the Bus Month 2022

4 weeks ago Thu 8th Sep 2022

September, a time to pick up routines left behind during summer and regain some normality. Whether you’re heading back to school, back to work, to leisure activities or just want a daily routine again, join us this September for Catch the Bus Month. Our team at Cardiff Bus are eager to welcome you back on board and resume your routines with you. Whether you’re one of our regular customers or a newcomer to the bus community, hop on board with us!

Are you wondering why you should catch the bus with us this month? There are many benefits of bus travel that you can read all about below…

A Sense of Community

There’s nothing better than seeing a friendly face on your daily commute to brighten up your morning. On the bus you never know who you may see. You could run into an old friend or acquaintance, or maybe you’ll see the person who always sits in the front left corner for the best view on the bottom deck. Regardless, catching the bus provides a sense of community and familiarity while reducing social isolation. With the uncertainties of what will happen in your day, the consistency of the friendly and communal nature of the bus is something you can always rely on. So, what are you waiting for? Get on board!

Accessibility

Travelling by bus provides access to all aspects of daily life whether it be education, work, leisure or travel. A bus will always be going where you need to be, so get on board this September and see for yourself how accessible and convenient incorporating the bus into your life will be.

Affordability

The cheaper the journey the better, right? Buses are an effective way of travel that is affordable. With the cost of everything rising, you can always rely on Cardiff Bus to remain reasonable with their prices. The average cost of filling up a family car is currently at a record high of over £100! So, save those pennies and get on board with us this September.

You'll find cheaper tickets on our app, and bundles of day and single tickets which are discounted further.

Find more information about costs on the fares section of our website and if you are eligible for a travel pass.

Sustainability

Do your bit for the environment and get on board this September. Catching the bus for just one journey in 25 would save 2 million tonnes of CO2 emissions. This is a great way to start reducing your carbon footprint and benefitting the environment by doing something as simple as catching the bus. This will in turn, improve air quality by reducing congestion and as a result improve people’s health and wellbeing. With double decker buses being able to take up to 75 cars off the road, it’s a no-brainer, catch the bus with us this September.

Universal Benefit

We all know how convenient buses are, they take us from A to B and give us a chance to unwind for the day ahead or relax at the end of the day. But that’s not its only use. The comprehensive nature of buses boosts the economy by a staggering £64 billion each year! While saving money on bus journeys compared to other modes of transport, you’re simultaneously benefitting the economy. This is even more reason to get on board this September.

What are Cardiff Bus doing?

In honour of Catch the Bus Month 2022, here at Cardiff Bus we are holding a Depot Open Day on 24th September to celebrate our 120 years of service as well as attending the bus user event Let's Talk Buses in Barry on Tuesday 27th September. As you can see, we have a lot of exciting things planned, keep an eye on our socials to find out more about these events!

We hope that these reasons will encourage you to join us for Catch the Bus Month, and every other month, we’re looking forward to welcoming you on board!

Plan your journey here.
