Find out how to use public transport

There are many benefits of choosing to use public transport over driving. Have a read below of just some of these many benefits you could experience from swapping driving for the bus or train.

Close to 40% of journeys of under two miles are currently made by cars.

These short car journeys create significantly higher levels of harmful emissions due to the car engines not operating at their optimum performance.

Instead, short trips can be easily swapped for public transport, helping you to reduce your carbon footprint and overall impact on the environment.

One full bus can take up to 50 cars off the road – helping to reduce congestion as well as the harmful emissions.

Journeys made by public transport can also often take no more time than driving and sometimes can even be faster, saving you time as well.

Plus, the benefits of using public transport doesn’t stop there.

Taking the bus or train over driving can even help better your health. Walking to and from the station or stop and continuing your journey on foot to your final destination helps you to stay active and exercise.

Along with your physical health, using public transport can help with being more productive as well as relaxing and de-stressing.

From reading, planning or even checking emails – you can maximise your time by getting stuff done on the go.

Or, if you would prefer to take the time to sit and relax, you can listen to music or watch out the window – helping elevate the stress of driving.
