CPT is proudly supporting Catch the Bus Month in September organised by Bus Users UK.

We are encouraging all our members to take part in the campaign and help raise awareness of the benefits of bus travel.

Ideas for how you can get involved include hosting:

  • An in-person recruitment and awareness event
  • An online Q&A “Ask the Operator” event or competition
  • A launch event of a special offer to passengers
  • A photo opportunity with a local MP, Councillor or Mayor

Commenting on the campaign, CPT’s Chief Executive Graham Vidler said:

“Catch the Bus Month is a great initiative to encourage people to try a more affordable, sustainable and comfortable alternative to taking the car to get to work, leisure, education or hospital appointments.  Plus, our services have the added benefits of reducing congestion on the roads and improving air quality.

“It is really pleasing to see that demand for bus and coach travel continues to grow with increasing numbers of passengers. There has never been a better time to join the five million people who travel by bus and coach every day.”

Claire Walters, Chief Executive of Bus Users UK the charity behind Catch the Bus Month said: “Buses are a lifeline for millions and bring huge health, social and environmental benefits to us all. As the cost of living crisis continues to bite, we need affordable, sustainable transport more than ever so it’s great to see CPT celebrating these vital services and encouraging more people to get on board.”
