Yesterday saw the start to the national Catch A Bus Week; an initiative designed to encourage people to use the bus more often

As part of the promotion, a bus will be touring the county between 28th April and 4th May. After yesterday's start in Norwich it was Great Yarmouth's turn today

This morning, the promotion bus was parked outside the Tesco store off Pasteur Road in the town. I took the opportunity to visit the vehicle and found the staff in attendance very friendly and helpful

It was run by Norfolk County Council travel and transport staff and representatives of the bus companies who were on hand to answer travel questions and offer discounts

The Catch the Bus promotion vehicle was ex Nottingham City Transport W924SNR
To launch the event yesterday, Norfolk County Council and Norwich City Council were offering a written pledge of quality in a new Norwich Bus Charter. It is expected that there will be a similar charter in place for the Great Yarmouth area

The bus in use was a former Nottingham City Transport Dennis Trident/East Lancs Lolyne registered W924SNR

This afternoon the bus moved to the town's ASDA store and staff were also available at Market Gates Shopping Centre to deal with enquiries
