Stagecoach Yorkshire is going online - to get on board with a national bus campaign.
The leading transport operator will be running a ‘Seven Days of Travel’ promotion on Twitter during the annual Catch the Bus Week campaign, by showcasing examples of the wide range of cultural and leisure hotspots people can travel to across South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire.
The national campaign, which takes place from 4-10 July, aims to drive awareness of the benefits of taking the bus and encourage people to make the switch from the car that week and consider leaving the car at home for some journeys in the future.
Stagecoach Yorkshire is joining Greener Journeys, which is spearheading the fourth annual campaign, and hundreds of other participants across the country including transport operators, passenger organisations and local authorities.
Stagecoach Yorkshire will be tweeting about the numerous leisure and tourist attractions across South Yorkshire and North Derbyshire passengers can access thanks to its buses.
John Young, Stagecoach Yorkshire Commercial Manager, said: “We are always keen to get involved with the national Catch the Bus Week to help promote the many economic, health and environmental benefits of bus travel, but this year we want to really bring the message closer to home.“Our Twitter campaign will help showcase the variety of entertainment, sporting and cultural hotspots we have in and across our region – and which are just a bus journey away.”
