Families to explore more with new summer travel ticket in Barnsley and the Dearne Valley

19 Jul 2016

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

 

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

 

Cannon Hall Farm, Barnsley Metrodome, Experience Barnsley and Locke Park are just some of the places families can visit in the Barnsley and Dearne Valley area.

 

Families can also travel further afield to destinations such as Doncaster Dome, Meadowhall, in Sheffield, Magna Science and Adventure Centre, in Rotherham, and Queen’s Park, in Chesterfield.

 

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