Transdev works with York Pride
Transdev is to work in partnership with York Pride for an LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) celebration in the city on 20 June. The company has agreed to be a sponsor of the annual event and will provide an open top electric City Sightseeing bus to lead the parade around the city. It will also run extra buses for the event. Two dedicated late night Coastliner journeys will run departing York city centre at midnight to Leeds and Malton on the night of York Pride. Each of the company’s 21 strong Yorkshire Coastliner fleet will be decorated with York Pride messages.
Transdev will decorate their City Sightseeing fleet with rainbow bunting. A rainbow flag will fly at Transdev’s Hospital Fields base and their Stonebow office will turn its windows into a rainbow above the city. Additionally, York Pride wristband holders will get 25% of York City Sightseeing tours and get free use of the Unibus on the day of York Pride (20 June).
MD for Transdev in Yorkshire, Alex Hornby, said, ‘It is both exciting and important for us all at Transdev to support York Pride. This event is all about local people coming together to celebrate the progress made for LGBT people and ensure we keep on fighting for equality. We are a truly local business and we are really looking forward to promoting the welcoming place that York and North Yorkshire is. We look forward to getting people to and from York Pride with extra buses being provided to ensure as many as possible can come along and make the most of the event.’
