Salisbury Reds is offering users half price day travel on Sunday, to mark World Car Free Day. The bus company says it is part of their commitment in helping more people use sustainable transport in the city, as well as to help ease congestion, and improve air quality.
Bus users will be able to get 50% off an adult Dayrider on Sunday, by using the operator’s mobile app – Clickit2Ride.
Andrew Wickham, managing director of the bus company says “At Salisbury Reds, we welcome any initiative designed to reduce the harmful effects exhaust emissions have on the environment,”
“Our bus fleet is one of the newest and cleanest in the region. Over recent years, we have introduced a large number of brand new buses to operate our services here. Many of these sport the very latest Euro 6 engine – releasing fewer emissions than the average new diesel car.
“World Car Free Day ties in perfectly with what we are trying to achieve. Buses provide the perfect and affordable solution to reducing air pollution, so we’re proud to have invested millions of pounds in improving the comfort and reliability of our services.”
World Car Free Day is celebrated around the world annually on 22 September. The event encourages drivers to give up their cars for the day and, in many cities, organised activities take place to celebrate streets that are normally dominated by cars.
