Bus company teams up with defence firm to engineer travel solution

A firm famous for fixing complex issues have joined forces with Stagecoach West to make the commute to and from work simple.

With a number of travel solutions for business already in place around North Bristol, Stagecoach is providing a new, special dedicated shuttle services to serve the Babcock International offices from the beginning of August.

This also includes free transport on Stagecoach buses around Bristol - making it easier than ever for staff to commute in a sustainable way.

Stagecoach West managing director Rupert Cox said: "We're really pleased to work with Babcock and help their staff get to and from their new offices.

"We already have several fantastic business partnerships around Bristol and South Gloucestershire, and it's great to be supporting the local community with greener travel options"

"We have an open-door policy with businesses and organisations who would like to talk to us about how we might be able to tailor one of our existing routes to suit their needs.

"If it can be justified, we will even lay on an entirely new service, as in the case of Babcock International."

As of August 5, Stagecoach West will be providing two single deck services running a continuous peak-time shuttle, Monday to Friday, for Babcock International staff.

Staff will simply need to show their work identification to the Stagecoach West driver to travel free of charge on the bus company's network.

The new route will run from between an off-site car park and the firm's new office in North Bristol.
