Cheaper travel for South Yorkshire passengers until the end of September

13/09/2021

Passengers in South Yorkshire have still got time to make the most of discounted bus, tram and train journeys in the big summer ticket sale.

With discounts of up to 25%, the offer applies to all adult TravelMaster tickets, including multi-mode 1-Day, 7-Day, 28-Day and Annual, as well as the brand new Flexi5, until 27 September.

TravelMaster Managing Director Matt Smallwood, said: "We've seen a great response to the summer sale - over 12,800 discounted tickets are already providing passengers across South Yorkshire with more than 32,000 days of cheaper travel on buses, trams and trains.

“There's still plenty of time for people to make the most of the 25% reduction in prices, get back on board and travel the greener way this September".

Delivered in partnership by TravelMaster and the Mayoral Combined Authority, the discount aims to encourage people back to town and city centres by public transport, to support recovery from Covid-19.

South Yorkshire Mayor Dan Jarvis, said: “We’re investing millions over the next 12 months to transform our bus network and make public transport more affordable, and this latest discount will help families in the pocket, ease congestion on the region’s roads and boost our recovery from COVID.

“I’m working to build a world-class public transport network and create a stronger, greener and fairer South Yorkshire. This is another example of how local leaders and I are taking action to make that vision a reality.”

“I hope everyone makes the most of this opportunity and enjoys a fantastic, last few weeks of summer in South Yorkshire.”

Tickets are discounted automatically and available from all TravelMaster retail channels, except rail stations – including, onboard buses and trams, at ticket vending machines, online or from a Payzone outlet.

Young people can get a double discount with 25% off adult TravelMaster ticket prices on top of the 15% off available to 18-22 card holders. The 25% discount does not apply to GetAbout tickets.
