BARNSLEY school kids are being invited to design their bus of the future for a new summer competition.

From vehicles with TVs to buses with solar panels, pupils are being encouraged to create a poster of their dream Stagecoach Yorkshire double-decker.

It forms part of the annual Catch the Bus Week which runs from June 29 to July 5. 

The week aims to raise awareness of the benefits of taking the bus and encourage local people to make the switch.

The winner of the competition will be presented with a bumper stationary pack filled with lots of handy items ready for the new school year in September.
