This weekend is the last opportunity to enjoy free Sunday morning bus travel in Derbyshire.

Derbyshire County Council has been offering free bus rides on six Sundays during the summer since July 23. This coming Sunday – August 27 – is the last day of the offer.

A number of operators are taking part in the scheme, including trentbarton and Stagecoach East Midlands.

Derbyshire County Council explains: “The offer includes the first bus to run on a Sunday morning up until those that are due to depart at 11.59am.

“Free buses will only be those that start and end in Derbyshire. Buses that start their journeys in Derby are not included. Passengers that start their journeys in Derby cannot take advantage of the free fare offer.

“The free fares are being paid for from the £47 million that the government awarded us to improve bus travel in Derbyshire.”

You can find the full list of bus operators taking part in the offer here.
