6 reasons why it’s Better By Bus in 2022

Getting the bus is back and we’re letting you know why it really is Better By Bus in Liverpool City Region

We’re on the road to normality, whether that’s being back out with friends for a bite to eat or cocktails in town, hitting the shops for a well-earned spree, or watching our favourite band in action.

And, as the wheels of life get back in motion and you’re looking forward to visiting the people and places you love, maybe it’s time to put the brakes on those hassle-filled car journeys?

Travelling in Liverpool is Better By Bus – and here are just few reasons why you should get back on board:

1. The bus is a great way of getting around and visiting your favourite places.

You may be planning to spend in Liverpool ONE, clear the cobwebs on New Brighton prom or go wild at Knowsley Safari. Or maybe you fancy getting your hands on a bargain in Widnes Market, checking out the iron men at Crosby or finding out how glass is made in St Helens…wherever you’re heading in Liverpool City Region, the bus can get you there.

2. Use the bus for stress-free journeys. 

Why concern yourself about which way you need to go, where you’ll park when you get there, or whether you’ve got enough fuel in the tank? Chill – and let the bus take you from A to B without you having to break out in a stress-sweat.

3. Bus travel gives you more ‘me time’.

When you’re not worried about keeping your hands on the wheel or your eyes glued to the road, there are tons of ways to enjoy a rare moment of ‘me time’. You can read that latest thriller, watch your favourite YouTuber, catch up on the latest news, check in on social media, listen to music or that podcast you’re desperate to get stuck in to, or just sit back, relax and do nothing! (When was the last time you got the chance to do that?!)

An amazing 70% of buses in our city region are powered by electric, hybrid or low emission engines, so bus travel is much more environmentally friendly than using the car, too.

4. There’s on-board Wi-Fi and USB charging points. 

You can stay connected every minute and every mile with free, hi-speed Wi-Fi, and you’ll never get caught out by low battery with USB charging points on board.

5. Getting the bus is more affordable than car travel – you’ll save on parking and petrol. 

And you won’t believe how much! A 20-mile work commute, for instance, will cost you around £97.72 a week by car – and only £20 by bus, saving you £77.72 every week! Over four weeks it costs £418.80 by car – and just £67.80 by bus.

With all that spare cash, you can afford a night out with your mates, a meal with the family, activities for the kids or, by the end of the year, sun, sea, and sand on a much-needed holiday.

6. You’ll be caring for the planet

An amazing 70% of buses in our city region are powered by electric, hybrid or low emission engines, so bus travel is much more environmentally friendly than using the car, too.
