Two transport providers have linked up to make travel in the Peaks easier.

Peak Rail has teamed up with High Peak Buses to launch a new joint ticket, which offers unlimited travel on Transpeak bus services and Peak Rail heritage trains.

The new ‘Twin Peak’ family ticket is available from Transpeak bus drivers and is valid on Saturdays and Sundays throughout the year and on Tuesdays and Wednesdays between April and September.

Jackie Statham, Peak Rail joint managing director, said: “We are very pleased to have had the opportunity to work with High Peak Buses to offer such a good value through ticket, and we hope that visitors will be encouraged to take full advantage of it and travel to us by public transport.

“The ticket is valid at Peak Rail on all our normal operating days during the year, but restrictions do apply on special event days including our December ‘Santa Special’ trains.

“Full details are given on our website at www.peakrail.co.uk”

For £33, a family of two adults and two children can enjoy a day’s unlimited travel on Transpeak services between Manchester, Buxton, Matlock and Derby and on Peak Rail trains between Matlock and Rowsley South via Darley Dale.

The Transpeak bus service operates hourly between Derby and Buxton with some journeys continuing through to Manchester.

All of Peak Rail’s stations are also served by Transpeak buses, offering passengers a variety of interchange points.

At Matlock station, Twin Peak ticket holders can also get a ten per cent discount on new books in Bill Hudson’s bookshop.

Full details of the Twin Peak ticket and the Transpeak bus service, route and stops can be found by visiting www.highpeakbuses.com
