As yesterday's post mentioned, Stagecoach in Yorkshire moved its National Express contract away from Barnsley during February. This was so that it could operate a new Megabus+ service from there, as well as LEYTR-based Stagecoach in Hull.

The strapline has been updated to include the term 'connections' and yet is still crying out for two hypens and a comma!

Connecting numerous Yorkshire towns and cities with East Midlands Trains' (EMT) services at the new East Midlands Parkway station, the new Megabus+ launches at the end of the month, offering coach+train travel to/from London with inclusive fares. It seems a fascinating new concept (perhaps until EMT passes to another operator!), though the company employed to design the map of the UK need a lesson in geography - Hull is not by the coast, nor is Scunthorpe north of the Humber!
