In for a penny, out for a day! – Stagecoach launches new, direct X1 Stagecoach Gold bus to Nottingham with a 1 penny fare.
From 27th October Stagecoach is launching a direct, express Stagecoach Gold bus service providing fast, affordable travel between Chesterfield, Clay Cross, Alfreton, South Normanton and Nottingham, including a new link from Nottingham to East Midlands Designer Outlet.
Plus, for the first week, Stagecoach are inviting people to try the service for just 1 penny per journey from 27th October to 2nd November.
The Stagecoach Gold service aims to provide an attractive travel experience for people heading into Nottingham for just £23 per week using the megarider Gold 7 day ticket (also valid on Pronto bus journeys). Deluxe e-leather seats, free on board Wifi and easy contactless payments on board make journeys relaxing and easy.
The express, limited stop route means that customers can get to their destination quickly, with just a few stopping points along the route including East Midlands Designer Outlet, Phoenix Business Park and Victoria Bus Station just next to the INTU Victoria Centre and a short walk from Nottingham Trent University.
Finding your closest bus stop and tracking your bus down couldn’t be easier with the new, improved Stagecoach Bus App. You can pre-buy day or week tickets and plan your journey in advance and even track your bus live on a map, so you will always know exactly where your bus is.
The new X1 is also ideal for a day out with the £7 Explorer day ticket valid for unlimited journeys all day on the X1 and local Stagecoach buses. So whether you’re heading for a day of shopping, or out for a bit of culture at the theatre, the Stagecoach Gold X1 is the ideal way to enjoy your trip without the hassle of traffic or parking the car.
Matt Davies, Managing Director of Stagecoach Yorkshire said; “We are excited to be adding this new route connecting Chesterfield and Nottingham to our network. The X1 will be an affordable and convenient way to travel to and from Nottingham, removing the stress of driving and finding a parking space. Relax in comfort and enjoy the free WiFi.
“In fact, we are so confident that customers will love our Stagecoach Gold experience, that we are inviting everyone to try it for a penny during the first week!”
