First Bus is one of the UK’s largest bus operators. From as far north as Aberdeen to as far south as Cornwall, your local First Bus company is connecting your community; helping people get to work, to education, attend appointments, go shopping or just go out for fun. And we want to be a service you can depend on.
First Bus supported the former SafeWise safety centre with a real double decker bus on the full size street scene, which was used by the thousands of children visiting each year to learn how to travel safely by bus.
Now, First Bus Regional Managing Director Marc Reddy is advising and supporting 360 to develop active, safer and sustainable travel modules within the Skill City VR environment.
“‘I am very supportive of the 360 concept. Helping young people understand the 21st century world, being safe, and being aware is fundamental for them and the whole community. Leading a bus company entails high volumes of our customers being young people, and encouraging them to use sustainable transport, and be safe at the same time, is vitally important for our climate and air quality. I am also hugely supportive of education for young people regarding the various dangers and challenging situations they may come across. Highlighting these is fundamental for their safety, and this is where I am passionate about our young people being safe at the coast too.
The 360 platform enables teachers and leaders to engage young people and to highlight scenarios in a safe environment, which has a benefit for the young person and society in general.”
