Walking to and from the bus stop counts towards the 30 active minutes we need to do each day in order to avoid putting on weight and stay fit and healthy.
Free up your time
Travelling on the bus gives you more ‘me’ time. There are lots of things you can do travelling on the bus that you can’t do whilst driving. You can read, listen to music or play games on your phone. Many buses now have plug points and Wi-Fi so you can catch up with friends on social media or check your emails before you get into the office.
Reduce stress levels
Taking the bus is proven to be 33% less stressful than driving (University of Sussex). By avoiding driving in bad weather or fighting through traffic jams, it's a good way to start and end the day more relaxed.
Help look after the environment
Did you know that one bus carries the same number of people as 30 cars and uses 10 times less space? Using the bus instead of the car can help to reduce our carbon footprint and also contribute to a much cleaner, greener environment by limiting the number of cars on the road.
