New tickets at the double for Chesterfield bus passengers

18 Apr 2016

Two new bus tickets are being introduced by Stagecoach in Chesterfield this week.


Following feedback from passengers, the bus operator is launching a Chesterfield Child Dayrider Plus ticket and a Family Explorer ticket.


Designed to help young people and families travel further afield, both tickets will start from Sunday 24 April.


The £2.50 Chesterfield Child Dayrider Plus is being launched following customer feedback and follows a successful trial of Stagecoach’s Chesterfield Child Dayrider ticket.


It will be available to customers aged five to 15 years old as well as holders of a b_line1 or b_line 2 card.


From 24 April, b_line2 Chesterfield dayrider and dayrider plus tickets will no longer be offered but passengers will still be able purchase child single and return fares.


The new Family Explorer will give two adults and up to three children unlimited daily travel on most Stagecoach buses in South Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire, Gainsborough as well as Stagecoach Supertram services in Sheffield for £10.


Millhouses Park, in Sheffield, Barnsley Metrodome, Parkgate Shopping Centre, in Rotherham, Queen’s Park, in Chesterfield, and the Heights of Abraham, in Matlock, are just some of the days out families can enjoy with the Family Explorer ticket.


Paul Lynch, managing director of Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “We place great importance on listening to our customers and the new Chesterfield Child Dayrider Plus and Family Explorer tickets have been designed based on feedback from passengers and comments from those who use local bus services.


“It’s about giving more young people and families the opportunity to take advantage of our great-value tickets and travel further afield to enjoy a wide range of leisure activities.”
