At National Express we share a fundamental belief that driving modal shift from cars to high quality mass transit is fundamental to a safe, green and prosperous future.

Public transport has always played a key role in social mobility and is ever more important in enabling economic recovery by providing safe access to work, education, retail and leisure.


There is growing recognition by policy makers around the world that public transport is critical in achieving climate targets and in making cities better places to live.
