SWINDON'S Bus Company is giving drivers a discount on travel if they decide to use public transport more as petrol prices soar.

With the fuel situation continuing to worsen in Wiltshire and the rest of the UK, the bus operator is offering customers who use the Swindon’s Bus Company app for the first time the ability to travel in any zone as often as they like for their first week with 50 percent off standard seven day tickets.

Just use the discount code FUELJUNE22.

“People across the UK are feeling the strain, with food and energy costs soaring - and car drivers can add fuel prices to the list,” said Swindon’s Bus Company managing director, Andrew Wickham. 

“We want to offer local people the opportunity to save on fuel by leaving their cars at home and travelling with us instead. They can try our services for half the cost of regular weekly app tickets. 

“In these challenging times, this is a chance to embrace green and efficient public transport, save money, reduce congestion, and improve air quality across our region. 

“Our bus fleet carries low missions Euro 6 engines, and just one full double decker bus has the potential to take up to 75 cars off the road - so we’re hoping for a positive response frompeople and the chance to make an impact on the quality of the air we breathe in Swindon.
