If you can swap just two car journeys per month for a bus journey, you could help reduce carbon emissions in the UK by nearly 2 million tonnes per year. Plus you’d be helping to reduce air pollution and congestion in your local area.

All Bluestar buses have clean, green, low emissions, Euro 6 engines which are more environmentally friendly than most diesel cars. On top of this, one double decker bus has the potential to take 75 cars off the road which means less traffic too.
