Bus passengers in the South West are set to benefit from an early Christmas present and help with the cost-of-living crisis with a special offer in the lead up to the ‘big day’ as Stagecoach West is offering offering a day’s travel for groups of up to four people every Saturday in December for just £2 per group within Cheltenham and Gloucester.

Managing Director Rachel Geliamassi said: “We’re delighted to offer our passengers a saving this festive season; what better way to enjoy all the delights of Cheltenham and Gloucester at Christmas than by bus? No queues or searching for that elusive parking space, not to mention the cost of fuel. We’re all feeling the pinch but we don’t want that to deter families and friends from making memories together this Christmas. By offering our Cheltenham and Gloucester Group DayRider ticket at a discounted rate of £2, we hope it’ll encourage people to enjoy the great festive events happening this December.”

Heath Gunter, Chief Executive at Cheltenham BID, added: “Well done to Stagecoach West for introducing this offer during the festive period. At a time when we are all looking for more affordable ways to travel, I don’t think you can beat £2 for a group ticket for four people! Cheltenham BID is pleased to support this offer and looks forward to seeing Stagecoach West customers in the town centre.”
