Five times the fun as Stagecoach extends travel offer

A group travel offer is being extended by Stagecoach Yorkshire giving a cost-effective way of getting out and about in Sheffield.

For £5, a group of up to five people can buy a ticket valid all day on any Saturday or Sunday.

The ticket was introduced in the run-up to Christmas and was due to end on January 31 but Stagecoach has extended the offer until further notice.

Matt Davies, MD of Stagecoach Yorkshire, says: “We are extending the Five for a Fiver offer so even more people can take advantage of this deal.

“This ticket is a great way of helping more people use our bus services where they don’t have to worry about finding parking or choosing a designated driver.

“We recognise that other travel options might be considered the cheaper option for larger groups but with this deal, which is valid all day, our customers can travel in a convenient way across Sheffield for just £5.

“Groups of five passengers can continue to use this offer in Sheffield during February half-term, over the Easter holidays, and every weekend in between, whether they’re having a day out shopping, going to watch the football or heading out for a night on the town.”
