This story is over

As of Monday, March 2 Stagecoach and PC Coaches passengers will be in with a chance of plucking one of 1,000 golden tickets in a campaign with Lincolnshire County Council.

The tickets will be placed on buses supported through the Access LN6 programme – the Stagecoach 14, 29 and 44a services, and the PC Coaches 48 and 49 services.

Until Sunday, March 8, a number of prizes will be won including bus tickets, book vouchers and one of two iPad Mini’s – one for each of the operators.

Councillor Richard Davies, Executive Councillor for Highways and Transportation at Lincolnshire County Council, said: “Through Access LN6, we want to encourage more people to consider using the bus instead of driving to work, or into Lincoln city centre for leisure.

“We hope this campaign will encourage people to try the bus as an alternative to other modes of transport – and see how convenient it can be.”

Both PC Coaches and Stagecoach offer multi-journey options such as daily, weekly or monthly tickets. More information about bus timetables and route os available at the website.

Suzanne Traynor from PC Coaches, said: “We are really pleased to be able to continue our partnership with Access LN6 to encourage more people onto the buses. As the partnership comes to end it’s good to be able to offer something back to our passengers.”

Andy Smith, Commercial Manager South at Stagecoach East Midlands, said: “We are happy to work with Lincolnshire County Council and the Access LN6 Team to help promote bus travel. By using the bus it not only helps the environment and reduces congestion, but also takes the stress away from driving and finding somewhere to park.”
