BARNSLEY now has its own brightly-coloured pride bus to celebrate diversity across the borough.

The Stagecoach bus will now be a regular feature on routes in the town to show support for the LGBTQ+ community.

Bill McCartney, operations director at Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “While often associated with the LGBTQ+ community and rightly so, pride is about much more than that.

“It’s about appreciating everyone for the individual that they are and celebrating what makes them unique.

“We want everyone to know they are welcome and valued on our buses and in our business.

“We are looking forward to celebrating with our staff and talking to the communities we serve at upcoming pride events.”
