On Thursday 22nd September 2022, Cardiff Bus is celebrating World Car Free Day! You may be wondering what this is and why it is so significant. We’re here to tell you all about World Car Free Day and why you should be participating.

World Car Free Day is a universal event that encourages people to use public transport to reduce their carbon footprint and therefore, benefit the environment. This is a great opportunity for you to travel on our buses sustainably and help reduce the CO2 emission in your area. This will inevitably have a knock-on effect because the less emissions that are produced, the better. If this alone isn’t enough to convince you to get on board with us for World Car Free Day, keep reading, we guarantee that you’ll soon be incorporating bus travel into your daily routine…

  1. Cost Effective

We all want to save money where we can, and it’s surprising how small, everyday things can add up. By catching the bus, you will save a huge amount of money on travel compared to commuting by car. Once you factor in the cost of petrol and parking, it’s a no brainer, catching the bus is the way to go! You can find fares that suit you here.

  1. Interaction

Whether you’re a people person or more introverted, social interaction is a great way to start your day. A friendly hello or a welcoming smile could make someone’s day ten times better, but this can’t be done travelling by car. Whether you’re on your daily commute, having a leisurely day or getting those dreaded chores out of the way, you may encounter the same friendly faces on your bus journey. This builds up a sense of familiarity and community through the mutual benefit of catching the bus, so get on board with us today.

  1. Maintaining Fitness

It’s always rewarding and satisfying when you hit your daily goal of 10,000 steps, and every little helps! Contribute to your step count by walking to your nearest bus stop and getting on board with us today. The fresh air will set you up for the day ahead and blow away the morning cobwebs.

  1. Relaxation

Life can be extremely busy and stressful, so why not take a moment to yourself? By catching the bus with us, you can switch off from the pressures of everyday life, sit back with your favourite music, podcast or book and let us do the work. No concentration required, simply sit back, relax and we’ll get you to where you need to be.

No one likes a jaded journey that’s longer than it should be. Tedious traffic can be a huge inconvenience on your day. By catching the bus with us, your travel time will be cut down by our convenient bus routes and skip the queue with our bus lanes, so we will get you to where you need to be in the nick of time.
