New Buses for Transpeak service

Transpeak service receives half a million pounds investment


The transpeak is one of Britain’s most scenic bus routes, which has run hourly through the heart of the Peak District for over 60 years.

Operating  between Derby and Buxton, and calling into Manchester 3 times a day, there are  a fantastic range of tourist attractions en-route, including: Matlock Bath, Bakewell and the Heights of Abraham.

High Peak Buses have invested over half a million pounds in brand new buses for this prestige service.  The vehicles, built in Scarborough by British company ADL, reduce carbon emissions through clean engine technology and boast the latest high quality interiors, complete with designer two tone wood effect flooring, comfortable leather seats and a dashing new livery.

For the first time on the Transpeak service, High Peak will be providing USB charging points and free on board wifi to keep customers connected throughout the journey.  Passengers will be able to charge smart devices, lap tops and mobile phones alike, whilst surfing the web or tweeting friends.

This investment will build on a well-established bus service, providing greater comfort and convenience whilst travelling through the beautiful Peak District countryside.
