It’s a money-saving tale of two cities – go off-peak with £1 travel deal

Shop ‘til you drop in Leeds or see the sights in historic York – the choice is yours 

It’s the ultimate travel treat for bargain-conscious shoppers – intercity travel between Leeds and York for just one pound!

That’s the amazing online exclusive offer on the VAMOOZ app from bus operator Transdev to encourage more people to discover how quick and easy travelling at off-peak times between the two cities can be.

From next Tuesday (30 April 2019) a limited number of one-way tickets priced at just £1 for travel in either direction between Leeds and York will be made available to buy in advance on the free to download VAMOOZ app – and with the fastest journey time between the two cities taking as little as 45 minutes, bargain hunters can look forward to saving time as well as money.

Transdev CEO Alex Hornby said: “We know that our customers love a bargain – and our £1 travel deal means they can start saving money before arriving in either York or Leeds.

“All of our special offer tickets will be sold exclusively via our VAMOOZ app for travel on selected named journeys between the two cities – and with a limited number of £1 tickets available each day, it’s first come, first served for Yorkshire’s travel bargain of the year.

“We’re also proud to support and promote visitor attractions in York, including 40 per cent discounts on admission to York Dungeon using our exclusive ‘Transdev Treats’ voucher, only available from the bus driver.

“Travelling between Leeds and York for just one pound is an amazing bargain when you consider that an off-peak day return on the train costs £15.70. That’s why this unique offer really is fantastic value for money.”

The VAMOOZ app is available for free download from the Apple App Store and Google Play – offering a swift, simple and secure buying process, with tickets stored safely in the app ready to show the driver at the start of the journey. Tickets can also be accessed without Wi-Fi or a data plan using the secure offline mode.

The app is also home to the innovative VAMOOZ concept, which offers home to school and work travel plus trips to events and attractions across the country at discount rates. Users can even suggest their own ideas for trips out, with £5 off a first booking for everyone.
