Totting up the cost of travel

A NORTH East bus operator is providing a fuel calculator to encourage more people to use public transport.

Arriva North East offers the regularly updated online calculator, which compares the cost of travelling by car with bus journeys.

People simply have to enter a few basic details about their daily journeys to find out how much they could save. The calculator also shows the difference in carbon emissions.

Arriva Marketing Manager John Fozzard said: “With fuel costs rocketing, people can reduce their travel costs even more than usual by catching the bus and leaving the car at home.

“We believe our fuel calculator will work out significant savings for many people in Morpeth because buses offer great value for passengers travelling around the local area.

“There are no car parking charges and it’s much better for the environment.”
