Thurgoland Parish Bus Route changes

posted 5 Jun 2017, 00:26 by Graeme Johnson   [ updated 1 Aug 2018, 03:34 by Thurgoland Parish Council ]
SYPTE has confirmed that Yorkshire Tiger have surrendered their contract, that SYPTE had accordingly re-tendered the routes they currently provide, and that Stagecoach will be taking them over with effect from 2nd September 2018. 

This will apply to most of Thurgoland parish bus routes, namely 23 / 23a / 24 / 24a. 

TM Travel will continue to provide their existing Mon - Sat evening and Sunday services for these routes as well as continuing to provide services on route 29.

One change will be that the present additional concession offered by Yorkshire Tiger to bus pass holders of a £1 fare before 9:30am will not be offered by Stagecoach. 

However, Stagecoach offers a different concession not currently offered by Yorkshire Tiger. Bus pass holders travelling to hospital appointments before 09:30am travel free with Stagecoach on production of a hospital appointment letter with the bus pass. 

We are not aware of any other changes at the present time aside from the change of operator.
