Southern Vectis is marking World Car Free Day – Sunday 22nd September – by offering half price travel in-and-around the Island for those using mobile ticketing apps.
The move is part of Southern Vectis’s commitment to helping more people use sustainable transport on the Isle of Wight. And World Car Free Day is an initiative aimed at easing congestion, as well as improving air quality by promoting mass transit, cycling and walking to motorists as alternative methods of travel.
Andrew Wickham, Managing Director for Go South Coast, says:
“At Southern Vectis, we welcome any initiative designed to reduce the harmful effects exhaust emissions have on the environment.
“Over recent years, we have introduced a large number of brand new buses to operate our services here. Many of these sport the very latest Euro 6 engine – releasing fewer emissions than the average new diesel car.
“World Car Free Day ties in perfectly with what we are trying to achieve in. Buses provide the perfect and affordable solution to reducing air pollution, so we’re proud to have invested millions of pounds in improving the comfort and reliability of our services.”
Southern Vectis is offering 50% off an adult 24 hour Rover ticket on Sunday 22nd September, bought via the operator’s mobile app – Clickit2Ride.
