The benefits of taking the bus
There are loads of reasons to travel by bus
It's constantly improvingOver the last few years First Group has spent over £220million on improvements to services and new buses.
All our new buses have easy-access, buggy-friendly low floors which are ideal for the elderly and people travelling with children.
It's environmentally friendly
All our new buses have the very latest, low emission Euro 5 specification engines. Also, as our buses carry at least 40 passengers, It's far greener than making individual car journeys.
Most people live within 500m of a bus stop, and unlike the train, we can drop you off exactly where you need to go.
Many of our services run every 15 minutes, so you're never likely to have to wait for long.
It's exceptional value for money
Especially if you take advantage of our weekly bus passes which offer unlimited travel within your local area.
It's safe, reliable and punctual
We set ourselves strict punctuality and reliability targets. We aim for at least 95% punctuality and 99.5% reliability.
