No more free buses

FREE bus travel for young people in the Dearne and Barnsley will end after August, but they will still get a good deal compared to other areas.

Charges of 30p will be made for bus journeys in the borough from September, but this compares well to 60p fares paid in other parts of South Yorkshire.

Barnsley Council asked the town’s youth council to help to decide on travel policies for the future, by choosing from various options.
