EAST Lancashire's main operator Transdev is celebrating national 'Catch the Bus Week' with special offers.

It is offering free days out, flash ticket deals and fun extras to passengers.

Transdev runs the Blackburn and Burnley Bus Companies, Rosso, Mainline, Witchway, Hotline and Red Express across Lancashire and the North-West.

This week's special offers include free Daytripper ticket giveaways on social media, big reductions on tickets bought through the Transdev Go mobile app, and chances to feel like a VIP with ‘bus butlers’ serving free goodies to lucky customers using Rosso buses.

Transdev chief executive Alex Hornby said: “We’re delighted to be getting behind this week-long campaign which promotes the best of British bus travel. There’s no better time than Catch The Bus Week to discover the many benefits of using our buses.

“Our services offer an easy, friendly and great value way to get around using smart, modern buses."
