Go with Granny on the Bus – that’s the message from Yorkshire bus operator Transdev, as it unveils a special weekend offer to help families beat the cost-of-living crisis this summer.
The bus firm that manages Team Pennine across Kirklees is aiming to bridge the generation gap by encouraging grans and grandads to hop on board with their concessionary travel passes … and for one weekend only, to take the grandkids with them all day for just one pound.
For one summer weekend, on Saturday, August 13 and Sunday, August 14, young people under 19 will have the chance to travel on anywhere for a full day for £1 as long as they Go with Granny or Grandad on the Bus.
With the cost of living going up every week, many will struggle this summer to find cash for the grandkids to join them on a day away, which led Transdev to set up the scheme.
Transdev CEO Alex Hornby said: “We know everyone is trying to keep their spending down this summer, especially with energy bills due to rise again in October.
“At the same time, the school holidays often see grans – and grandads too – looking after the grandchildren while mum and dad are at work, and we don’t see why they should have to stay at home.
“By offering young people the chance to Go with Granny on the Bus, we want to help bridge the generation gap and make sure everyone has the chance to enjoy an amazing two days filled with magical memories.”
Under 19s can buy a go-anywhere day ticket for Transdev’s entire network for just £1 from the driver on August 13 and 14, when they travel with their gran or grandad using a concessionary pass to make the same journeys.
