Morebus urging car drivers to take the bus on Clean Air Day

Posted on: 16/06/2021

Morebus is marking Clean Air Day – Thursday 17 June – by urging people in Bournemouth and Poole to leave their cars at home and travel by sustainable transport instead.

“We are committed to helping improve the quality of air we breathe in the region, and we have been working on this in a number of ways over recent years – including investing in a new fleet of greener vehicles,” said Andrew Wickham, Morebus managing director.

“Buses have the potential to take many cars off the road – even with current on-board social distancing measures in place. 

“Even though so called ‘Freedom Day’ has been postponed, there are still plenty of reasons for people to travel across the region. Offices, shops, bars, restaurants and tourist attractions are all open for business, and we are seeing an increasing number of passengers on board our buses. 

“Bus travel has changed beyond recognition over recent years, and those who haven’t travelled with us recently will be amazed at the enhancements we’ve made. 

“Our new buses have more comfortable seating, USB charging points for smartphone and tablet users, accept mobile phone payments, as well as contactless and they sport the very latest Euro 6 low emissions engines.

“If more people choose to leave their cars at home and travel with us instead – on Clean Air Day and moving forwards – we could make a real impact in helping to improve the air quality in Dorset.”
