Smarter Travel
Bus - Be Multimodal

Being multi modal is just combining travel methods.

We are already doing it when we walk to the Bus Stop or the train station. Studies have shown that those who use the bus are, on average, fitter than those who habitually use the car because they combine their main mode with active travel.

Regularly walking to and from the bus stop can help with your general health. You can also try getting off a stop or two earlier. This can be an easy way of building up your physical activity.

On a bus, you can sit back, relax and enjoy the ride as you listen to a podcast, read a book, catch up on the news or just watch the world go by. At the end of your journey you don’t need to worry about finding a parking space!

Dedicated bus lanes on main routes allow buses to get through the city quickly. Buses with few stopping points are often just as quick as the car.

Whether you're nipping to the shops, commuting to work or meeting friends the other side of the city, it is cheaper to travel on the bus than using your own car.

Increasingly, buses have free Wi-Fi - You don't have to use your mobile data to connect to the internet!
