• Time to Change

    It’s time. Time to get back out there, to reconnect with all those you’ve missed and rediscover all the wonderful places around you.

 

When we stayed indoors,

the outdoors got greener;

the air around us became so much cleaner.

So let’s get going, it’s time to look ahead

 Look after our future, use the bus instead.

So get back onboard, we’ve got safety covered

To work places or favourite spaces, your route rediscovered.


Step onto our buses. They’re clean, safe and ready - waiting to take you to wherever you need to go!

Rediscover your route by bus, from workplaces to favourite places, pop on a face covering and smile from the eyes. Take it slowly - one journey at a time.

Walk or Cycle to the bus stop - improve your health! Make the time to shed that “Lockdown Lard” whilst caring for the environment with every step.

So whether it’s a trip to the park, a catch up with friends, a trip to the shops for that new autumn wardrobe or a visit to see Mum and Dad or Gran, we’re waiting to take you back to all that you enjoy!

Here are some of our favourite places to visit:

Norwich is a city that’s no stranger to change. Its built city walls, flung open the gates, welcomed strangers, fought battles, made the papers, and written stories for the world to read. Now its your time to reconnect with the places you love and the faces you've missed.

Heading back to work?

Many of you have been working from home for some time and now businesses are beginning to call their employees back to the workplace.

We are keen to reassure all employers and our customers that we have taken many extra steps to ensure our buses are clean and safe; we are already safely carrying more people which is great for the economy and vital to get our high streets up and running again.

If you haven’t already seen, we have put together a helpful guide here on our website with sound advice on getting ready to return safely to public transport now that Government advice has changed.

Why not watch our short 3-minute film, where our colleague Jake, leads you on a tour around our buses? He shows the steps we have taken to make our buses safe, cleaner and greener for your return.

Why not cycle and ride?

Lockdown encouraged many of us to explore what was on our doorstep either by foot or by bike.

Don't let heading back to work pause your hard work, continue to improve your health and fitness by taking a short cycle ride to one of our Norwich Park and Ride sites, then hop onto the bus and commute on into the city.  

Find our more about our Cycle and Ride Scheme

As always, please remember to wear a face covering which is compulsory, unless you are exempt, and to keep our drivers safe please consider paying by contactless or buying your ticket in advance on our app.  

Why not even buy yourself a day ticket, monthly pass or sign up to our Employee Discount Scheme,  especially if you about to return to work. You can save 10% on a year bus travel - an offer you wont want to miss. 

That way all you’ll need to remember to do is pack your lunch, wear a face covering, and head back to work safely by bus.
