Bus operator Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire is celebrating Valentine’s Day with a special promotion for people in Lancashire.
To celebrate the season of love, the company is encouraging people to take a single bus journey this February by dropping off over 10,000 free single tickets across Lancashire.
The tickets will give people a free single journey on Stagecoach routes 109 and 113 which run from Preston to Chorleyvia Leyland for two weeks.
Elisabeth Tasker, managing director for Stagecoach Merseyside and South Lancashire, said: “We want to show our passengers how special they are to us this Valentine’s Day by offering them a free journey – we’re also looking to woo people who don’t usually use the bus and hopefully persuade them to give it a try!
“Getting the bus is a great way of meeting new people. All generations take the bus and are often looking to strike up a conversation to help pass the time. We’re hoping our special ‘#StagecoachSingles’ promotion might spark off a conversation and just give people a bit of laugh on Valentine’s Day. After all, you never know who you might meet on the bus!”
