Changes to further Sheffield Bus Partnership services will take place in late January and early February 2016 to improve service delivery for customers. Information about these changes will be published in mid-January.

A Sheffield Bus Partnership spokesperson, said: “Sheffield Bus Partnership continues to monitor customer comments since the network changes on 1 November to identify specific problems with journeys on new routes and to make service improvements as a direct result.

“Customer satisfaction is important to us and many changes have already been put in place to improve journeys, including the introduction of double decker buses to improve capacity and additional driver training. The timetable changes aim to further improve the punctuality and reliability of bus services in Sheffield and to make sure the city-wide network is delivering for all.”

Bus, tram and train services change throughout the year. Passengers can register for a free timetable alert service at travelsouthyorkshire.com that automatically sends an email when there is a change to their regular service.
