travel sustainably for half price on world earth day 22 april

We are marking Earth Day which is on Friday 22 April - by offering passengers a half price 24 hour Rover ticket - encouraging you to leave your cars at home for the day and catch the bus instead.

“This means adults will be able to travel on our services for the whole of Earth Day from just £5,” said Southern Vectis head of communications, Nikki Honer.

“We are committed to helping improve the quality of air we breathe here, and we have been working on this in a number of ways - including investing new, greener, vehicles.

“A double decker bus has the potential to take up to 75 cars off the road, and we’re asking people to leave their own vehicles at home on Earth Day.

“Bus travel has changed beyond recognition over recent years, and those who haven’t travelled with us recently will be amazed at the enhancements we’ve made. Our buses are more frequent, have more comfortable seating, offer next stop announcements and USB charging points for smartphone users, accept mobile phone payments, as well as contactless and tap on tap off - and they sport the very latest Euro 6 low emissions engines.

“We hope our Earth Day offer encourages more people to take the bus. If we can convert some car users, even for a few journeys, it could make a huge difference to the local environment in the long term, as well as helping ease the island’s congestion issues.”
