Stagecoach Yorkshire is offering rail users with valid or recently expired train passes free bus travel throughout January on theirnew X10 route.
The Stagecoach Express X10 provides a fast, limited stop connection for commuters and leisure users between Barnsley and Leeds.
The service runs hourly, seven days a week from Barnsley via the motorway, stopping at New Lodge, Darton, Kexborough, and Leeds City Bus Station, with later evening journeys also available on Fridays and Saturdays, with a last return trip from Leeds at 11.20pm.
Customers who present a valid weekly, monthly or longer-term train pass for travel between Barnsley and Leeds during the month of January 2018 will be able to travel on the X10 bus route for free.
John Young, Commercial Director at Stagecoach said: “We launched the X10 at the end of October and it has proved to be very popular for commuters travelling for work, people heading into Leeds for a day out shopping plus those looking to enjoy the city’s nightlife.
“After Christmas we know funds are often running low and train fares increase so this will hopefully be a late festive gift to rail passengers who can save money on travel between Barnsley and Leeds by catching the Stagecoach Express X10 bus for free throughout January.”
The X10 also offers passengers comfortable coach seats, mobile device charging points, and free on-board WIFI.
The train pass must be for travel between either Barnsley or Darton and Leeds. The offer includes customers whose weekly, monthly or longer term tickets expired in December.
Customers with valid/December-expired train passes can travel as many times as they like on the X10 during the month of January with no restrictions by showing their rail passes each time they travel.
The offer is not valid for free travel on any other Stagecoach service.
