Founding Principles

Our Founding Principles


The Bus Users Group is

  • Independent
  • Broad-based
  • Constructive

and acts with intelligence, decency and a sense of fun




Independent:

  • Funded by Channel Islands businesses, foundations, and individuals who see a community benefit, and who wish voluntarily to offset some of their carbon footprint
  • Representing all Guernsey bus users, not a government department or a bus operator
  • No serving elected politicians or coach operators on the committee



Broad-based

  • No membership fee
  • Open to all
  • Knowing our members
  • Moderate, consensual, gradualist, peaceful
  • Inclusive - we use Guernsey’s buses as much as we comfortably can, and wish to encourage others to do so



Constructive

  • Positive about the opportunities for Guernsey buses
  • Original and creative in our approach to broadening bus appeal
  • Pragmatic about the short-term, on the lookout for «quick wins»
  • Ambitious for the long-term
