Zeelo, the smart bus services company for organisations and specialists in finding and fulfilling demand from corporates and schools for coach services, has announced free coach transfers for Euro Bus Expo attendees. In a bid to encourage greener travel to the venue, there will be no charge for journeys taken to the exhibition.
“Zeelo is pleased to offer free transport on our smart buses to Euro Bus Expo visitors, and we are also looking forward to attending the event and meeting with our partners in the industry. This partnership with Euro Bus Expo demonstrates how using our smart bus platform can help operators to identify and build services that maximise ridership and get more coaches on the road for private services across the country,” said Sam Ryan, CEO at Zeelo.
“All this while helping corporates and schools to meet the transport needs of their staff and students wherever they live. The added benefit to commuters is that they will help reduce pollution and improve congestion with smarter, faster, safer, green and reliable bus services in partnership with the UK’s local bus operators,” he added.
The Zeelo service will be available across all days of the exhibition, with coaches running to and from six locations including Brighton, Cardiff, Colchester, Liverpool, Portsmouth and York. Convincing people to use more sustainable transport modes is vital for the UK to meet its carbon reduction and net zero targets, and to unlock all the benefits to the environment, society, and the nation’s health and wellbeing they bring.
It is only fitting that the sector’s showcase supports this challenge by providing lower-carbon travel options, with a Zeelo bus journey already offsetting 100% of every journey, including the dead-leg. This free coach transfer initiative has the potential to take 900 return car journeys off the roads. Not only is this more environmentally friendly, but it also makes the exhibition more accessible and affordable for attendees.
Taking place at Birmingham’s NEC from 1 to 3 November 2022, the exhibition will bring together thought leaders, suppliers, manufacturers and thousands of operators that all play a critical role in decarbonising transport. Visitors will discover the latest emission-reducing technologies, take part in demonstrations on zero emission vehicles, and learn about the practicalities of implementation in a series of free to attend seminars.
