Families to explore more with new summer travel ticket

19 Jul 2016

Chesterfield families can enjoy days out in Derbyshire and Yorkshire during the summer holidays with a little help from Stagecoach.


The Family Explorer ticket offers two adults and three children unlimited daily Stagecoach bus and tram travel to hundreds of attractions and destinations across Derbyshire, Nottinghamshire and South and West Yorkshire for £10.


Queen’s Park, Chesterfield Bowl, Poolsbrook Country Park and Creswell Craggs are just some of the places families can visit in the Chesterfield area.


Families can also travel further afield to destinations such as Doncaster Dome, Cannon Hall Farm, in Barnsley, Magna Science and Adventure Centre, in Rotherham, and Meadowhall, in Sheffield.


John Young, commercial director at Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “Families can use the Explorer ticket to see the sights in Derbyshire and Yorkshire and save the pounds this summer.


“We hope it will encourage families to get out of the house during the school holidays and visit more of the fantastic places this area has to offer.


“Activities such as swimming, zoos and go karting are all a short bus or tram ride away, meaning families can have countless adventures this summer made cheaper with the Explorer ticket.


“Our low floor, buggy friendly buses take the stress out of the journey and could save families more than £13 on one day’s travel.”
