Night Bus To Launch In Barnsley

Tuesday August 26 2014

Stagecoach Stagecoach

A NEW weekend night bus is set to launch in Barnsley.

Stagecoach's N27 service, which goes from Barnsley to Grimethorpe via Brierley, will run on Saturday nights and into Sunday morning.

Launching on August 30, it will operate a flat fare of £2.50 and run hourly at 12.25am, 1.25am, 2.25am and 3.25am.

It's Barnsley's second night bus following the launch of the N66 that serves Birdwell, Hoyland and Elsecar.

John Young, acting commercial director at Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: "For passengers who enjoy visiting pub and clubs, or those on a night out in the town centre, it offers a safe and affordable way home."

just hope it there is no idiots spoil it carrying on and fighting as this makes going out more affordable better than a £10 taxi for 1

There was a bus in the late 80's I think the company was called Richardsons. They ran a bus from Barnsley to sheffield, going down Stairfoot towards Wombwell and through Mexborough but the idiots that got on it caused them to stop running it. I think this will be the same.

We at Hoyland have had a night bus for a while now. Its fab. The drivers are lovely and I have never seen an trouble on them, even though most are a little drunk! People who use this service respect & appreciate it.

Need more buses from brierley to pontefract or more regarly

Jay there are 2 busses that serve penistone and cover the area well but there never really busy through the day so how many would use it at night and there are plenty of alkis in barnsley tht use the busses daily and are no trouble so for the drunk part dont see it being a problem iv not had a problem while doing the night services
