SIX buses costing nearly £700,000 have been put into service to improve transport to Barnsley’s hospital.
The 37-seaters will be used on routes 93 and 95 from Barnsley to the District General Hospital, Barugh Green and Darton.
The 93 service will also go on to Woolley Grange and the 95 to Kexbrough.
Paul Lynch, Stagecoach Yorkshire managing director, said: “This investment underlines our commitment to the travelling public in Barnsley and to making their journeys as comfortable as possible.
“This is important for those visiting the hospital, while the Next Stop technology will help all passengers, especially those with sight or hearing difficulties.”
Stagecoach Yorkshire employs more than 1,200 members of staff in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Barnsley, Rotherham, Doncaster and the Dearne Valley.
