The bus operator has been consistently and regularly cancelling services since September 2021 – often citing driver shortages for the disruption.

In particular, concerns have been raised over the 77 service between Chesterfield and Worksop with reports it has not run at all in recent days.

But as industrial action by the RMT Union looks to severely disrupt the rail network today, Stagecoach has revealed it is expecting to operate on the majority on its routes through the town as residents turn to the buses for their travel.
