Magic new bus service to launch

A SPELLBINDING new bus service is set to introduce a sprinkling of magic in one of the Dearne’s busiest areas.

Called the Magic Bus, it will run every 20 minutes during the daytime from Mondays to Saturdays along the Rotherham to Manvers and Wath corridor.

Fares for unlimited travel on the low budget, no frills route, which launched this week, will be as low as £3 a day and £9 per week with a £2 maximum single fare and a discount for students.

The number 22 Magic Bus, which will use low floor step free single deckers, will have limited stops between Rotherham Town Centre and Swinton, stopping at Parkgate Shops, Rawmarsh (Dale Road) and Swinton (Woodman roundabout).

It will then serve all stops between Swinton (Woodman Roundabout) and Wath including Dearne Valley College and Manvers.
