Why getting a ticket to ride on a bus can cut greenhouse gas emissions

The need to change our travel habits for the better has never been greater, but with the cost-of-living crisis taking hold, many people have to had to take the difficult decision whether to do what is right for them and the money in their pockets, or what is right for the environment.

This World Car Free Day (Thursday 22nd September) we are being encouraged to cut down on the number of vehicles on the roads which would have a direct impact on carbon emissions.

It comes as new research has found half of 13.10pm is the time the majority of greenhouse gas emissions take place with half of UK adults (50%) saying they would take the bus more often if they knew it was having a direct positive impact on the environment.

First bus is working proactively with our local authority partners, making a positive impact on air quality, tackling congestion and improving customer experience. They are focused on First Bus becoming a leader in the transition to a low-carbon future and are committed to operating a zero-emission bus fleet by 2035.

Aston spoke to Isabel McAllister, chief sustainability officer at First Bus.
