Kids travel for £1 this Christmas

11 Dec 2019

Stagecoach West Scotland is spreading the festive cheer by bringing back its ‘Kids go for £1’ offer this Christmas.


Stagecoach launched this year’s Christmas offer at Ayr Bus Station with a special visit from Santa who took a break from his busy schedule to hand out advent calendars to its young passengers.


The ‘Kids go for £1’ offer is available every weekend in December and through the school holidays until Sunday 5th January. Up to four kids aged 15 or under can travel with an adult on all of Stagecoach West Scotland’s bus routes for only £1 per child while all children under five continue to go for free.


‘Kids go for £1’ tickets are available to buy on board all Stagecoach West Scotland services in Ayrshire, including the Isle of Arran, Glasgow, Cumbernauld and Dumfries and Galloway excluding night services.


Fiona Doherty, Managing Director at Stagecoach West Scotland, said: “Christmas is always a really busy time of year as families do lots of travelling to meet relatives and friends, go to parties and visit the shops.


“Taking the bus is already a cost-effective way to travel across the West of Scotland so we hope that bringing back our ‘Kids go for £1’ offer this Christmas will allow families to make a significant saving when travelling with Stagecoach throughout the festive period.


“We’d like to wish all our passengers a very merry Christmas and all the very best for the New Year.”
