A number of Stagecoach buses are set to change in the coming weeks – with some routes seeing improved services and other routes being cut entirely.

From Sunday, October 29, Stagecoach is set to make a number of changes to its buses services Chesterfield and Derbyshire.

The company has reduced or removed a “very small number” of routes, as the number of people using them has fallen but the cost of running the buses has risen significantly.
