Catch the Bus Week 2018

It's back for 2018 - and McGill's has plenty in store to encourage those who don't usually use the bus to give it a try!

Catch the Bus Week takes place from Monday 2 July - Sunday 8 July! McGill's is celebrating this year by encouraging you to recommend a friend to try the bus, and you will both receive an adult all-day ticket!

  • Ask your friend to sign up to McGill's free m-ticket app (must be a new sign up)
  • Email us at marketing@mcgillsbuses.co.uk or message us on Twitter or Facebook with you and your friend's names
  • We'll gift you both a free all-day ticket

There's plenty of reasons to take the bus too, and we have put some together for you:
  • With bus lanes, we can get you to your destinations quicker than by car
  • You may find we're cheaper than the train and parking in Glasgow - saving you money!
  • Searching for change is a thing of the past, you can pay with contactless, McGill's free m-ticket app or GoSmart card
  • McGill's services offer 98% reliability
  • McGill's has frequent services throughout Renfrewshire, Inverclyde, Monklands and more!
  • It's good for your health
Not only is public transport great value for money with McGill's all-day, weekly, 4-weekly and 10-weekly tickets, if more people were to give the bus a try - there would be less traffic as just one bus is able to take 40-70 vehicles off the road.

Click below for the best GoZone and prices for you:

GoZone 1 - Renfrewshire (to Glasgow city centre)
GoZone 2 -  Inverclyde  - (between Kilmacolm & Wemyss Bay)

This yearly event is a great opportunity for everyone to get involved and to highlight the benefits of public transport. And you could find you save more money than if you currently take the car or train.
