Bus Champions Wanted – Play a Part in Helping to Promote Sustainable Transport

East Lothian Council are looking for local people who passionately support sustainable transport to help with our bus promotional campaign over three months. The bus champions will be expected to actively advocate the benefits of switching to public transport by regularly sharing their bus travel experience on social media (Twitter, Facebook, etc.).  Quotes and images may be used on leaflets and in newspapers, and ideally the champions will be able to join us at a couple of promotional events. Our #EastLothianByBus campaign aims to raise awareness of local of public transport and to encourage more people to consider taking the bus.

As an incentive, each champion will have the option to choose to receive a three/four months One-ticket bus pass (the pass covers 84 days) or a £60 East Lothian Gift Card (https://eastlothiangiftcard.co.uk/).

If you are interested, contact milieva@eastlothian.gov.uk or call 01620 827 933.
