Free ride for festive competition winner

15 Jan 2015

A lucky bus passenger from Sheffield is set to enjoy free rein with Stagecoach this January after winning a festive travel competition.

David Huteson, from Firth Park, in Sheffield, has been awarded four weeks free bus and tram travel with Stagecoach.

David was picked out by the leading operator as winner of its festive competition which saw Father Christmas make an appearance on buses across the city during December.

Santa and one of his elves handed out competition entries to passengers on board Sheffield buses as a thank you for travelling with Stagecoach during 2014.

David Huteson, said: “I use Stagecoach buses nearly every day, so the free travel will come in really handy. 

It’s great to see Stagecoach giving back to people who use their services. It was a welcome surprise when I found out.”

Paul Lynch, managing director at Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “We have some incredibly loyal customers and this competition was our way of giving something back to passengers as a reward for their loyalty.

“As a customer-focused company, we are always striving to put passengers first. We had a great response to the festive competition and Santa was really popular! We’d like to congratulate David on being picked out as the winner!”
