Catch the bus to beat the prices at the petrol pumps!

During the week of 9 June 2022 the RAC reported the cost of filling an average family car has topped £100!

Swindon’s Bus Company are offering local car drivers the chance to avoid rising fuel costs by switching to the bus, and try out services by saving you half the cost of a weekly app ticket.

With prices at fuel pumps increasing towards £2 per litre – and predicted to go much higher – many are reconsidering their travel options, and we are urging you to embrace green and efficient public transport.
