Travelling Light in the Hope Valley

Visiting the Hope Valley by bus

Why not use the bus instead of the car to explore the Hope Valley this February half term? Local businesses are offering some great discounts if you travel to them by bus, from discounted bike hire to free coffee with your cake.

The Peak District's beautiful Hope Valley is a great place to visit with affordable half-term activities that are easily accessible by bus, and you can make the most of the Government’s £2 price cap on single bus fares too! Plus, you'll be doing your bit to reduce your carbon footprint by enjoying a car-free day out.

Lots of friendly local businesses are supporting visitors and residents to #UseTheBus by offering discounts from 11th-24th February 2023. To help you plan your car-free visit, we've compiled some handy information highlighting where you can travel to on the great network of buses across the Hope Valley.

Don't delay, hop on the bus today!
