Web on the go for Sheffield gran

Have your say

A GRANDMA from Sheffield is web-surfing her way around the city after winning an iPad in an eco-friendly competition.

Ruth Linden, from Brincliffe, won the iPad mini at an event hosted by Stagecoach and Hallam FM, which saw the launch of the transport operator’s new £6 million eco-bus fleet.

She will be able to use her new tablet on any of Stagecoach’s 40 electric hybrid buses that operate on routes 52 and 120 and have free wi-fi.

Stagecoach passengers can also access wi-fi on the 43 Sheffield–Dronfield–Chesterfield, 71 Sheffield–Killamarsh- Chesterfield, and the X17 services.

Ruth said: “The iPad will be so handy for working on the go, and I can use it to catch up with my grandchildren.

“It is fantastic Stagecoach has invested in wi-fi.”
