Bus For a Fairer Future
Bus has always had an important role in Scotland’s society. It keeps communities of all sizes connected and provides the people living in them with access to opportunities and essential services that would be otherwise unreachable.
From education and employment to shopping and essential services, bus is a lifeline for those who are unable to afford, access, or utilise car as a form of transport. Now, in the aftermath of the pandemic, and UK-wide current economic turmoil, bus offers an essential route towards rebalancing societal fairness by maintaining an ‘access for all’ focus within Scotland’s transport infrastructure.
