Loyal bus passenger Barry Smith is ‘glo-ing’ with pride after winning £240 worth of free travel.


Delight: Barry Smith is presented with £240 worth of free travel by Caitln Beck, Marketing Sales Assistant, Yellow Buses.

The father of two from Bearwood hit the jackpot simply by topping up his Yellow Buses’ Glo smartcard electronic purse.

He was chosen as the winner of the company’s £20 Glo purse for 12 months competition entitling him to £240 worth of free travel with the Yellows.

“I was both shocked and excited to hear I’d won,” said Barry, an IT technician, who uses the 4d route to travel to and from work at Canford School.

He added: “It’s a great prize and well worth having.”

The Glo Purse allows users to add value and make travel purchases as required.

Jenni Wilkinson, Yellow Buses’ Head of Marketing, said: “Barry is one of a growing number of passengers to get the Glo Purse habit. It’s quick, easy to use and very convenient.”
