#lovemybus — bus at heart of a just, green recovery

Bus must be at the heart of a just, green recovery.

You can meet our new #lovemybus champions here.

Bus can be a solution for tackling the challenges we face; improving our health, reducing pressure on the NHS, tackling inequalities and climate change, creating green jobs and strengthening our economy. How can we all help? Showing support for bus!

Each of us, in supporting bus, can be part of a national effort towards a safer, fairer, healthier, greener society and a strong, resilient economy. For those who have not chosen to use bus for regular journeys before, this is a great time to plan to choose bus when you return to regular journeys.

Stay up to date on latest guidance here: https://www.transport.gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19/

If you care about a safe, healthy future for you, your community or planet – choosing bus is a choice that can make a real difference. Here you can find evidence to support you, and to share with friends, on why planning to switch to bus is a smart choice – for you, wider society and our planet.

Professor Adrian Davis, our valued adviser on Transport and Health shares his ‘Essential Evidence’ to show us how bus will be so important to achieving a just, green recovery. Author and bus expert Chris Cheek is also contributing valuable Evidence for the campaign below.
