Driving through the challenges

Issue 2 2012  •  25 April 2012  •  Les Warneford, Managing Director, Stagecoach UK Bus

The current difficulties in the economy are proving to be a major challenge for businesses of all kinds across the UK… and the bus industry is no different as we too face rising costs.

Increasing fuel bills and energy costs, as well as lower public sector investment in bus services, and cuts to the Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG) which were implemented in April 2012, mean bus operators face tough economic conditions.

Now, more than ever, it is crucial to recog – nise the contribution that buses make to our daily lives. The bus industry is vital to millions of people all over the country who rely on our services day in, day out. Bus services also play a key role in helping to deliver economic growth and in helping high streets in towns and cities across the country recover from the downturn.

At Stagecoach, our strategy has been to offer good value, greener, smarter bus travel. The result is that we have been able to attract people out of cars and help play our part in addressing the country’s climate change targets.
