Enjoy the Ride!
Whenever I get the bus it reminds me of Friday trips to the shops with my Mum. There would always be someone to chat to at the bus stop, the excitement of seeing the bus in the distance, the slight worry that the driver might not see us and so it might not stop for us, then the thrill of sitting at the front and ringing the bell!
Now I might have outgrown most of these, but its still nice to get on the bus and sit and relax while the lovely Peak District scenery rolls by.
This year our friends over at High Peak Buses are promoting our lovely Enjoy the Ride! posters, on buses and at bus stations, and this year they have a number of different tickets available including a new 3-day ticket which would be ideal for visitors.
The guys at HP Buses told me: "It’s much less fuss to travel by bus into the High Peak area of Derbyshire – we have regular bus services linking Buxton with Ashbourne, Bakewell, Belper, Derby, Glossop, Leek, Macclesfield, Manchester Airport, Marple, Matlock, New Mills and Stockport. High Peak buses have a great range of Day, Weekly, 4-Weekly tickets along with our NEW 3-day tickets which are ideal for those visitors staying in the High Peak area making bus travel a viable alternative to using the car – helping free up our grid-locked roads and helping to reduce emissions!"

What's more this year for the first time we are really excited to also be working with High Peak and Hope Valley Community Rail Partnership to encourage people to come to Buxton for the Fringe via rail.
On Wednesday 28th June we will be sharing a stall with High Peak and Hope Valley Community Rail Partnership to promote using the train to travel to Fringe events, so look out for us at Manchester Piccadilly and please come and say hello.
Everyone knows about the benefits of using public transport; there's no hassle parking and it's good for the environment plus this year you can enjoy a pint of limited edition Fringe Beer and not worry about being safe to drive home!
So come on, support the environment, let the bus (or train) take the strain and let's make this another environmentally friendly Fringe!
