Better by Bus

We're about proving to the world that it's better by's our manifesto

We’re about proving to the world that it’s better by bus.
It’s something we live and breathe.
It’s what drives us. (Pun intended)
And it’s what you’d expect from a bus company that serves 2.5m people across the west midlands.
We don’t just take people from A to B.
We take them to work, to school, to the shops, to meet friends, to get together with family.
We are part of the infrastructure of their everyday lives.
That’s why we strive to live up to being better.
It’s why we invest in new, modern buses that are less polluting and quieter with more space and room.
It’s why our drivers are trained to be friendly, courteous and respected on the road.
And why our passengers can sit back, read, keep up on social media and use our free Wi-Fi, or simply watch the world go by without having to think about parking spaces. It’s about putting people of this second city, first.
And that even on the shortest journeys, we go the extra mile. It’s about giving people what they deserve.
And everyone deserves better.
