Sparkling new gold buses for Stagecoach Gold service with £1.9m investment


A fleet of eight Gold buses has been launched in South Yorkshire and Derbyshire as part of a £1.9 million investment by operator Stagecoach.


The premium double decker Alexander Dennis Enviro 400 MMC vehicles, will run on the Stagecoach Gold X17 route between Sheffield, Chesterfield and Matlock, which was recently extended to also cover Meadowhall and Barnsley.


Each luxury bus has high-back, Italian hand-stitched e-leather seats, ambient lighting, free Wi-Fi and USB charging points. They also boast specially-trained hand-picked drivers and have environmentally friendly Euro 6 engines.


Matt Davies, managing director, Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “We’re extremely proud to introduce these fantastic vehicles on to our popular X17 route between Barnsley, Meadowhall, Sheffield, Chesterfield and Matlock.


“It’s a very popular route, which has been growing well over the last few years, attracting lots of new customers. We wanted to make it even better and give Stagecoach Gold a little extra sparkle with these state of the art new buses.


“The vehicles have handpicked staff, smart e-leather seats and free wifi and USB charging which makes travelling on a Stagecoach Gold bus a stress-free and comfortable experience, designed to encourage people to leave their cars at home and travel with us in style.”
