Nottinghamshire people are being encouraged to get out and about on January weekends with free bus journeys from trentbarton between 10am and 11am on Sundays.
trentbarton’s free ride Sunday is the perfect way to kick start the New Year after the festivities. Every Sunday in January all trentbarton buses across the East Midlands will be free to use for everybody.
There’s no small print – just hop on any trentbarton bus (excluding pronto, and Arriva X38 buses) between 10am and 11am on the 13th, 20th, and 27th January and there is no fare to pay whatsoever.
Jordan Kemp, trentbarton’s marketing & communications manager, said: “After all the indulgences and spending in December, free ride Sunday is the perfect antidote. It’s also a great time to make a new start – and that can include taking back your Sundays from the sofa.
“Our network covers the East Midlands, so if you’re planning on getting out to visit friends and family, eat somewhere new, grab some bargains in the sales, or going for a peaceful stroll in the peaks, we’ll be going your way.
“There is always lots going on for the thousands of passengers who will be travelling for free on Sunday mornings – including on our fast and comfy red arrow coaches between Nottingham and Derby.”
Jeff Allen, chairman of Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID), said: “This is a great initiative that we hope encourages lots more people to come to Nottingham city centre to enjoy all that the city has to offer.
“It means that anyone living in places as far afield as Derby, Heanor, Hucknall, Mansfield, Bingham, Keyworth and Radcliffe as well as places closer to the city such as West Bridgford, Arnold and Beeston, can travel to Nottingham free of charge on these mornings and not have to bother with parking either.
“Having discovered or rediscovered just how great Nottingham is hopefully it will encourage them to return too.”
