First Glasgow teams up with Pride Glasgow 2018 to offer discounted travel
First Glasgow have teamed up with Pride Glasgow 2018 to provide discounted bus travel for revellers heading to this weekend’s festival in Kelvingrove Park on July 14 & 15.
Pride Glasgow event programmes will contain 1000 codes for discounted travel (500 each day of the festivities) via the First Glasgow mTicket app to allow revellers to access all the festivities at a great price this weekend. The discounts codes each day will reduce the price of a Glasgow Network Ticket from £5.50 to £3.00 for all day unlimited travel to and from the park.
The partnership is just one of the ways First Glasgow is connecting the people of Glasgow with more accessible, frequent and affordable transport in and around the city – while also tackling traffic congestion.
First Glasgow Commercial Director, Graeme Macfarlan, said: “Everyone at First Glasgow are delighted to be supporting this year Pride Glasgow 2018 festival. Hopefully the discounted travel for revellers can play a part in the success of the event and I hope everyone attending enjoys themselves. David and the organisers have been a pleasure to deal with, we wish them every success this weekend and look forward to working with them again in the future.”
This year’s Glasgow Pride 2018 event features the annual parade from the city centre to the park on Saturday as well as music from GBX on Saturday and pop group Steps on Sunday. For full details of the weekend festivities, click here: http://festival.pride.scot/
David Sinclair, Glasgow Pride 2018 Trustee said: "We are thrilled to be working with First Bus, they have shown great commitment and support to the LGBTI community by working with us and providing discounted travel on their services. But also to work long term with us, which is always a great boost for the LGBTI community. We therefore, hope that people ditch the car and hop on the bus this weekend."
Revellers can find their discount codes inside the event programme. There are 500 to find each day and can be activated using the First Glasgow mTicket app. Tickets can be booked using the First Bus mTickets app and planning a journey is now even easier using the new First Bus journey planner app.
