Greener Journeys: helping to make the switch to bus and coach

Greener Journeys is a campaign dedicated to encouraging people to make more sustainable travel choices. We aim to reduce CO2 emissions from transport by encouraging people to switch some of their car journeys to bus or coach instead. Switching from car to bus for just one journey a month would mean one billion fewer car journeys on our roads and would save two million tonnes of CO2 every year.

Buses enable us to live better lives

Economic

Delivering a lasting prosperity, throughout Britain

Environmental

Protecting the environment

Social

Enabling everyone to take part in the life of Britain

Over 170,000 people are employed in the bus and coach industry, with a further 83,000 through its supply chain.
