Busboost
Transport

How it works

Busboost is a scheme that encourages new starters to an organisation to leave their car at home and try public transport.

More details

The Busboost offer is across certain areas in Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield.  For new employees who are willing to leave their car at home and commute to work on public transport, instead of using their car.  We will give them a free 28 days of travel on bus, tram and train.  All that we ask is that whilst in receipt of the pass that they try and use it as much as possible both for travelling to work and in their leisure time.

My experience

Julie Holliday – Head of Support Services – Rotherham NHS Foundation trust

“The concept of the scheme is very good and for the participants it worked well. The Travel Choices Advisor was very supportive and provided all the marketing materials required to promote the scheme to internal staff.”

June Burke

“The bus journey time is the same as driving my car, the cost of a day return ticket is the same as I would pay for petrol and most of all, I can relax and let the bus driver take the strain of negotiating through rush hour traffic”.

Is it for you?

Employees have to be existing car drivers or car share passengers to be eligible. Those who already use public transport aren’t eligible. The ticket is valid on all operators, all modes of public transport and anywhere in South Yorkshire.

To be able to apply for the scheme your organisation must take part in it, we cannot offer tickets to individuals. If your organisation is interested please give us their details and an appropriate contact and we will be in touch.
