Better buses to serve villages

Have your say

SHINY new buses are being launched on a route through South Yorkshire after a £1.4 million investment by operator Stagecoach.

The company has bought 10 new vehicles for route 19, the link between Dinnington and other villages with Rotherham and Worksop.

To celebrate, Stagecoach is making next Monday, December 19, ‘19 day’.

There will be giveaways on buses along the route and competitions where customers can win free travel.

The company is also be letting all 19 year olds travel on the service free for the day - provided they can show proof of age to the driver.

One of the new buses will be parked by Dinnington bus station. Residents and visitors are invited to pop in, see the new bus, pick up a timetable and have a mince pie.

Gary Nolan, Stagecoach East Midlands managing director, said: “More and more people are discovering that the bus is the best way to get to work college or go shopping.

“Our new buses have space for buggies and wheelchairs.”
