Save our Buses

Buses are the most frequently used form of public transport. Day in and day out they link thousands of people up and down the country to jobs, schools and shops.

However, Government spending cuts are having a devastating effect on our vital bus services. Across the country vital buses are being axed by local authorities as they make financially agonising decisions of where to cut spending. The Save Our Buses campaign stands up for treasured local buses and defends them from damaging funding cuts. Routes and services across England and Wales are being lost and if we don't make a stand now, it will be too late.

Read our guide, Three stages to better bus services using the Bus Services Act

Buses must be saved because:

  • 64 per cent of jobseekers either have no access to a vehicle or cannot drive
  • Young people are amongst the biggest users of bus services , whilst 40 per cent of people over 60 use the bus at least once a week
  • Passenger cars produce nearly 60 per cent of all CO2 emissions from road transport in the UK, compared with just 5 per cent from buses
  • If drivers switched just one in twenty five of their car journeys to bus or coach, it would mean one billion fewer car journeys per year
  • Every £1 of public investment in buses provides between £3 and £5 of wider benefits
  • Bus commuters generate £64 billion in economic output every year
