Shopper bags free bus travel

Have your say

Lucky 49-year-old Sheffield shopper Christopher Deighton has won a year’s free travel in a contest aimed at highlighting green travel options.

Travel South Yorkshire teamed up with Tesco and Sheffield Council to launch a free prize draw as part of the Travel Smart promotion – encouraging the use of environmentally-friendly travel and public transport to the Tesco Spital Hill store.

Christopher said: “I was astonished to win. Public transport is the only kind of transport I have access to, so it will make a big difference to me.”

Customers can still enter to win one of four remaining annual TravelMasters – giving unlimited travel in South Yorkshire on bus, train and tram – by completing a competition form, available in store, and handing it in to Tesco Spital Hill customer services.”
