Stagecoach Yorkshire has announced a new bus service, the Stagecoach Express X10, which will provide a fast, limited stop connection for commuters and leisure users between Barnsley and Leeds.
The limited stop service will run hourly, 7 days a week from Barnsley via the motorway into Leeds; New Lodge, Darton, Kexborough and Leeds City Bus Station with late night journeys also available on Friday and Saturday.
The X10 will start running from 28 October and offers travellers comfortable coach seats, charging points as well as free on-board WIFI. To celebrate the launch of the new service Stagecoach is offering all trips on the Stagecoach Express X10 for FREE from 28th October to 3rd November.
From 4th November fares will apply but to make life easier, you can pay for your tickets on the bus with either cash or use Stagecoach’s convenient contactless payment. Day and weekly tickets are available and you can also download the Stagecoach Bus App to buy tickets in advance.
A single fare will cost £6, and a return is priced at £7. If you are planning on using the bus route every day, then passengers can benefit from the ‘travel all week’ ticket costing £30. A family ticket (based on two adults and up to three children) costs £15 for a ticket for the whole day.
John Young, Commercial Director at Stagecoach said: “We are really excited to bring this new service to our customers. The X10 will get passengers from Barnsley into Leeds quickly and comfortably without them having to worry about sitting behind a wheel in traffic jams or expensive city centre parking charges.
“Whether you’re travelling for work, heading into Leeds for a day out shopping or even visiting Leeds for its nightlife, we have a great value ticket for your journey.
“We are expecting this service to be very popular and are looking forward to welcoming our first passengers on board the Stagecoach Express X10.”
