Mobico Group is proud of the role it plays in local communities and encourages colleagues to participate in a wide range of activities that have a positive impact on the diverse communities that we serve.

Each of the Divisions undertakes a wide range of community programmes and initiatives supporting young people. 

In 2021 ALSA launched an initiative for reforesting Congoto de Valdavia (Palencia). This initiative seeks to recover the significant ecological value of an area that saw 100,000 trees destroyed in a major fire in 2020. More than 92,240 trees are being replanted across 58,9 hectares.

In the UK, the National Express Foundation is a key channel to support community initiatives which help young people to succeed in life. Since 2012, the Foundation has donated more than £1.6 million impacting the lives of more than 26,000 young people.

Colleagues in North America, engage with their local communities through the Partners Beyond The Bus initiative. Teams work together to support a cause which relevant to them. This can include Stuff the Bus appeals to collect food, toys and other essential items for those most in need.

At the Group level, Mobico has been a corporate partner to Transaid for over a decade. Transaid’s mission, to transform lives through safe, available transport, sits at the heart of our purpose, to drive modal shift and key outcomes of the Evolve strategy. In particular, Transaid’s focus on road safety and aims to build employability and professional skills in local communities.

Mobico Group has contributed over £100,000 towards the charity since becoming a corporate partner. In addition to the financial contribution, we provide the opportunity for colleagues to participate in train the trainer opportunities for Transaid projects where they can contribute their professional skills.
