Scottish Bus Week 2022

Monday 23 May – Sunday 29 May 2022

Scottish Bus Week is an opportunity to celebrate bus and the role it can play as a solution to the biggest challenges we face.  It is also a chance to show gratitude to those working in bus who provided essential services throughout the pandemic.

What is Scottish Bus Week all about?

Scottish Bus Week is an opportunity for everyone to celebrate bus!

An initiative from #lovemybus (from Transform Scotland) is supported by Paths for All and partners – including First Bus, Stagecoach Scotland, Lothian Buses, Borders Buses, West Coast Motors, Glasgow Citybus  – Scottish Bus Week will be delivered in partnership with CPT Scotland.

The #lovemybus team will be in different towns and cities across Scotland throughout the week. If you would like to join in Scottish Bus Week with an event or a focus on bus locally – do let us know!

Why Celebrate Bus?

Buses are a solution to challenges that we have on our doorstep right now.

Buses can help us to improve health, tackle the climate emergency, build a fairer transport system and improve access to opportunities.

While buses can reduce emissions, air pollution and inequalities across our communities, they also make a significant contribution to our economy. Scotland manufactures low and zero emission buses. Investment in building buses and providing bus services creates good jobs. Buses reduce congestion which can cost Scotland £2 billion a year. Buses connect us for education, work and leisure.

Buses kept us connected throughout a pandemic by continuing to provide essential services – critical for key workers during lock down.

Scottish Bus Week is a great moment to show our gratitude to all those who deliver these essential services throughout all the challenging times!

How can our group or organisation get involved?

If you, your workplace or local group would like to take part in your own way – with  a celebration of bus, a presentation about all the benefits of bus or a fun challenge to encourage your team to choose bus, improve health and reduce climate emissions – do let us know so we can include you in the Programme!

Free presentations, goodies and pop up displays are available on request.

Get involved and tag us in your actions – #ScottishBusWeek, #ChooseBus #lovemybus and for those featuring the connections with active travel – #WalktoBus and #WalkCycleBus!

Watch out for competitions and events online too!
