Stagecoach joins forces with Gloucestershire Hospital Foundation for staff ticket offer
Stagecoach West is offering NHS staff working at Gloucestershire Hospital Foundation Trust 25 per cent off all bus travel.
The bus operator has launched the initiative to encourage more Trust staff to make the switch from car to bus and get on board with greener travel.
Rachel Geliamassi, Managing Director, Stagecoach West says: “We’re hoping this new initiative will help ease travel costs for our much-appreciated NHS staff, especially now when every penny counts.
“As well as saving money on transport costs, Trust staff using the bus are doing their bit for the environment. A fully loaded double decker bus can take up to 75 cars off the road and if everyone switched from car to bus just once a month there would be a billion fewer car journeys which is a saving of 2 million tonnes of carbon dioxide being released into the atmosphere.”
The 25 per cent discount can be used on tickets covering travel in ‘Cheltenham’, ‘Gloucester’, ‘Cheltenham and Gloucester Plus’ and ‘West Gold’ which includes Gloucester, Cheltenham, Stroud, Cirencester, Swindon and Oxford and the offer can be used with the following ticket types:
Tickets must be bought on the Stagecoach app or online at stagecoachbus.com/tickets.
