• #BusTravelRocks

    Looking for something fun to do with the kiddies?

Why not take a break from the home-schooling, D.I.Y or box set DVD’s and channel that inner creative?


We have an awesome kiddies campaign involving rock-painting.


Our #BusTravelRocks campaign encourages families and individuals to leave a picture or message on a rock at their local bus shelter to acknowledge and celebrate our bus drivers, who transport key workers across our region each day, as our country continues to fight this pandemic.


A simple message or picture on a rock left at the bus stop will truly brighten our driver’s day, as well as bring a smile to all the other key workers that wait to board our buses.


It’s a form of appreciation for everything they do.


Send us a picture of your painted rock via a social media, tagging us in or hastagging #BusTravelRocks and stand a chance to win a fabulous Anywhere Family Day Ticket.


So, the next time you head out on your daily exercise, take your rock and leave it at your local bus shelter in a safe and secure position, to ensure that no one trips or falls over it.


A simple rock is a small gesture that can show an enormous amount of kindness!  #bustravelrocks


What to do next?

Let’s see who our best local artists are!


Step 1 – Find a rock


Step 2 – Clean your rock with soap and water


Step 4 – Paint your rock in a bright, fun and colourful design and say thank you to all bus drivers & other key workers across our region. 


Step 5 – Seal the rock to protect your design – a clear lacquer or nail varnish will do the job.


Step 6 – Spread your message. Take a photo and hashtag #bustravelrocks, then leave it at your local bus shelter when you next head out on your daily walk. You can even tag in a few friends and encourage them to do the same.  


Now sit back and feel proud, because the next time a key work or driver stops at the shelter, your rock will spread a little kindness and happiness.
