A LOCAL bus passenger is featured in a new campaign to encourage better behaviour on public transport across the county.

Bartosz Gonzalez, from South Kirkby, won the Arrive Yorkshire ‘Your Journey’ competition, along with Emma Daniel, from Ossett, and Deborah Blair, from Tingley.

The trio will now see their faces on bus posters across the county as part of an initiative urging fellow passengers to look after the buses and respect other users.

Chloe Leach O’Connell, marketing and communications manager for Arriva Yorkshire, said: “Over the past 12 months we have made big improvements to our buses, not only to service delivery but to the external presentation and the internal cleanliness too.

“This campaign, featuring Emma, Bart and Debs, is helping remind our passengers that every journey is their own journey.

“So whether it’s Debs urging people to take their newspapers with them or Bart asking customers not to litter, we hope that fellow passengers will take note and help make every journey a pleasant one.”

Arriva Yorkshire is responsible for providing bus services across the county, including the Hemsworth and South Elmsall area.
