Go greener with Borders Buses

As well as making bus travel super simple, our app's journey planner tells you how much carbon you're saving by ditching the car and taking the bus.

  • Galashiels to Hawick by bus saves 4263g of CO2 compared to taking the car: the same as watching TV for 443 hours!

  • Berwick to Edinburgh by bus saves 20452g of CO2 compared to taking the car: the same as keeping a lightbulb on for 5768 hours!

  • St Boswells to Earlson by bus saves 1621g of CO2 compared to taking the car: the same as keeping a fridge running for 59 days!

Download the Borders Buses app for free from the App Store or Google Play for your mobile phone.
