Andrew Jarvis, managing director, First Bus Scotland

Climate change is the biggest challenge of our generation. How can we, as consumers and members of the business community, make changes to our behaviour to demonstrate our commitment to solving the problem of climate change. Could public transport hold the key to tackling the climate emergency?
Join Andrew Jarvis, managing director, First Bus Scotland, as he explains how buses can help a city achieve positive steps towards reducing its climate impact. Andrew will also take us on a journey through topics including investment, technology, low emission zones, and the pivotal role First Bus is playing Aberdeen’s hydrogen strategy. He will provide a brief overview of the First Bus story so far, the recent announcement of a sale of the bus business, and reflect on the challenges bus operators currently face.
With its headquarters based here in Aberdeen, First Bus is a leading provider of transport services in the UK, delivering around a fifth of all local bus services outside of London. First provide easy and convenient mobility, improving quality of life by connecting people and communities.
