Person getting on a bus

If you live in the West of England we’ve got a special birthday gift for you. Throughout the whole of the month that your birthday falls in you can enjoy free travel on buses across the West of England.

Dan Norris, Metro Mayor says:

“If you’re already a bus user this is a free month to help during the cost-of-living crisis. But I hope Birthday buses give more people who aren’t already regular bus passengers the perfect opportunity to jump on the bus and try it out - perhaps for a regular commute, to go to the shops or to spend their weekends enjoying the amazing attractions and beauty of our region. We really need more people using buses to cut congestion and meet our ambitious net-zero targets.”

“I’m delighted to launch this ground-breaking scheme and look forward to seeing as many people as possible making the most of this fantastic offer to travel across the West of England by bus for free.”
