RSC and Stagecoach announce late bus service from Stratford to Coventry
The Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) today announced a new pilot scheme with Stagecoach Midlands to provide a late-night bus service connecting Stratford-upon-Avon to Leamington Spa, Warwick and Coventry. The service will be added to RSC’s ‘You. Smart. Thing.’ powered travel assistant (featured below), which provides tailored sustainable travel plans for audiences and visitors, helping to test demand for new transport options that offer affordable and low-carbon ways for people to enjoy cultural events across the region.
RSC Executive Director, Catherine Mallyon, said,
“The RSC is so pleased to be leading this bus pilot with Stagecoach and hope it will enable more people to visit Stratford-upon-Avon and the RSC, in comfort, at convenient times, and with the confidence of choosing a more sustainable way to travel.”
Mark Whitelocks, Stagecoach Midlands Managing Director, added,
“We are delighted to be running this additional evening service in partnership with the RSC. Giving people more travel opportunities opens up public transport to a wider audience. Passengers can see a show in Stratford-upon-Avon in the knowledge there will be a bus home at the end of the night.”
