Go online as you ride on new bus fleet

Have your say

six new buses fitted with free Wi-Fi internet access are now on the roads.

Stagecoach has spent £1.1 million on the fleet of double-deckers for route 43, which connects Sheffield and Chesterfield via Dronfield.

They were launched with a special giveaway in Chesterfield town centre, where people had the chance to look inside the new vehicles and Stagecoach handed out free gifts and vouchers.

Rupert Cox, commercial director of Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “We are extremely proud to celebrate this major investment in the new vehicles.

“They are being introduced to cater for significant passenger growth and will replace the fleet of single decker buses previously used on the route.

“Providing more seats on every journey is part of our commitment to consistently exceed our customers’ expectations with frequent, reliable, value-for-money services, which offer the highest standards of comfort and accessibility.

“The Chesterfield-Sheffield corridor via Dronfield is well used by workers and shoppers.”
