Bus users better off

A new national study from Stagecoach has shown that buses offer better value for money than commuting by car

The research, admittedly carried out by one of the UK’s largest bus operators, showed that bus travel costs are on average 57% cheaper than the same commute by car, typically saving passengers around £110 per month.

The study looked at 35 key commuter routes in England, Scotland and Wales, comparing the cost of a bus journey with the cost of fuel and parking.

The biggest savings were found in Scotland, where bus passengers between Glenrothes and Edinburgh, and Ayr and Glasgow, could save £2,800 per year, and passengers travelling between Worthing and Brighton were £2,600 better off.
