Get connected on the buses

Have your say

Eight new buses fitted with free Wi-Fi internet access have been introduced in Barnsley, thanks to a £1.1million investment by Stagecoach Yorkshire.

The fleet of high-tech Scania single deckers have been introduced on route X19, which connects Barnsley with Doncaster-Robin Hood Airport.

All journeys on the new- look X19 service will now have free Wi-Fi, allowing passengers with smartphones to check emails, Tweet, shop online or browse the web all the way to their destination.

Stagecoach Yorkshire has also improved frequency by doubling the number of buses to every 30 minutes between Barnsley and Doncaster, Monday to Saturdays. The X19 buses will continue to run every hour on Sundays.
