Nottingham’s Lord Mayor travels by NCT to support city’s carbon neutral ambitions

Nottingham’s Lord Mayor, Councillor Wendy Smith, is fully supporting Nottingham’s aim to be carbon neutral by 2028, by getting on board Nottingham City Transport’s fleet of low-emission buses when travelling to civic duties in the City.

Councillor Wendy Smith became the Lord Mayor of Nottingham earlier this year and has been a councillor for Bilborough since 2013.

The Bilborough buses – Pink 28 and Orange 35 – have been Councillor Smith’s preferred way of getting around since moving to the area over 30 years ago – and Wendy is expanding her use of the comprehensive NCT network by using routes throughout Nottingham when undertaking the duties of Lord Mayor.

Wendy’s passion for travelling by bus and encouraging others to follow her example is being promoted through a full-sized bus back advert, which was recently unveiled at NCT’s depot.

David Astill, NCT Managing Director said, David Astill, NCT Managing Director said, “We are delighted to have Nottingham’s Lord Mayor on board. Her decision to travel with NCT demonstrates the convenience offered by our comprehensive network of high frequency and quality bus services at reasonable fares “

Lord Mayor, Councillor Wendy Smith added, “Using the buses is a quick, easy and relaxing way to get to events. I haven’t got to worry about parking and the bus lanes mean I’m less likely to be stuck in a traffic jam.  And it’s better for the environment too.”

The Lord Mayor’s bus operates across all NCT’s double-deck routes.
