To run our companies in a safe, socially and environmentally responsible way

We believe a sustainable public transport network is essential to the future of any society and as a leading provider of passenger transport services, sustainability is integral to the way we run our franchises. Ensuring the safety of our passengers and our people is an absolute priority for us. We are also committed to making a contribution to the communities in which we operate and wider society. Reducing the environmental impact of our operations while providing a greener alternative to the private car contributes to the Government's environmental targets.
