Here’s a good reason to get back on the bus – free booze!
First Bus York is offering a new group ticket and free York Gin G&Ts to welcome people back into the city centre.
The First Taste of Freedom ticket costs just £5 for up to five people to travel together on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday using the First Bus app. A single ticket normally costs £2.
As an extra bonus, two of York Gin’s newly-launched range of canned G&Ts can be enjoyed with every First Taste of Freedom ticket.
MD of First York Marc Bichtemann said: “We’ve teamed up with York Gin to help local people celebrate as life begins to look more normal in the coming weeks.
“It’s part of our partnerships with York’s businesses to support them and the city’s recovery from the pandemic. And what better way than staying local and spending local in leisure and hospitality?
“Our message to everyone who’s going to enjoy their day out or an evening with friends with a York Gin G&T on us is simple: please leave your car at home.”
York Gin sales manager Adam Cook said: “This is a fantastic initiative by First Bus to encourage people back into the city centre. The city really needs support from locals, students and visitors.”
York Gin have just launched their cans of gin and tonic. Customers can choose between the classic G&T which uses gold award-winning York Gin London Dry and a bespoke premium light tonic, and the ‘Berry Fizz’ which also has natural fruit flavours added, to give it a refreshing summery taste.
