Bus For a Stronger Future
Scotland is bus country. We even build buses for other countries around the world. The bus industry directly and indirectly creates thousands of jobs, for people of all backgrounds. And it keeps people across the nation connected to professional and commercial opportunities that strengthen our economy. In short, bus literally moves Scotland forward.
Boosting Scotland’s workforce
In 2019 the bus industry provided 14,700 jobs in Scotland and supports another 83,000 supply chain roles. The more people choose bus over car, the more robust we can make this key Scottish industry. You have the power to help raise demand and create jobs in your community, by hopping on your local line.
#BusForFuture and help strengthen the economy to benefit everyone in Scotland.
Bus can help save billions
Traffic congestion costs Scotland over £2bn a year. That’s money literally ‘jammed up’ that could go to frontline services, education, housing, and countless other ways to strengthen our society, national infrastructure, and economy. Fewer car drivers means less need for roadworks to expand and maintain roads, cleaner air, and more space in our urban areas.
Choose #BusForFuture to cut congestion in Scotland’s towns and cities.
A green light for Scottish industry
You might not realise it, but Scotland builds buses like nobody’s business. Our bus manufacturers get orders from all around the world. It’s not just fossil fuel buses either. Scotland is a global leader in low and zero emission bus engineering, and we wowed the rest of the world as our green buses took centre stage during COP26 in Glasgow.
By choosing #BusForFuture, you can help Scotland to literally build a better tomorrow.
