Reindeer will be seen pulling Santa in his sleigh full of presents this December as a Sheffield bus company has revealed its new Christmas vehicle.
Stagecoach Yorkshire’s new Christmas bus will be travelling around South Yorkshire in the weeks leading up to the big day to spread a bit of additional festive cheer. The bus will be taking on Sheffield’s bus routes from December 6 to 11, and again from December 19 to 24.
To fully embrace the festivities, Stagecoach Yorkshire drivers will also be wearing their best festive attire and taking part in a Christmas Jumper month from December 1, as well as raising money for local charities. They will also have a supply of sweets to hand out to children on the decked-out bus.
Managing director Matt Kitchin said “We hope that the Christmas bus brings a little extra festive magic to our passengers while they are travelling with us this season.
“It’s fantastic to see drivers getting in the spirit and going the extra mile to spread some Christmas cheer to our passengers.”
