The Big Bus operates up to 6 days a week (generally 1st & 3rd Mondays and each Tuesday – Saturday) travelling to over 200 locations across Northern Ireland covering around 20,000 miles per year. 

Through Action Cancer’s corporate partnerships, the Big Bus makes a few visits each month to selected SuperValu and Centra stores. The Big Bus also visits some Gordons Chemists stores during October, for Breast Cancer Awareness Month. At these locations, appointments are always available to the general public. 

However, for most of our Big Bus schedule, we rely on local community organisations, schools, workplaces, councils and other public sector bodies to hire the Big Bus for a day, allowing their members, local contacts or employees to avail of appointments on board. 

For a current list of our upcoming Big Bus locations, where appointments can be booked by the general public, please see below.
