FirstGroup has grown to become one of the largest international transport groups in the world. We have more than 120,000 employees and transport around 2.5 billion passengers per year. Every day, millions of people rely on us to connect communities and make their lives easier.

Despite the scale and diversity of our company, our operations are locally focused. Our relationship with our local communities is therefore very important to us and an essential part of supporting the growth of our business.

Our community programmes allow us to work with local authorities and community organisations, supporting initiatives that deliver a wide range of community benefits.
