Last call for comments on Barnsley bus consultation

28/07/2016

TRANSPORT CHIEFS are calling for Barnsley passengers to comment on bus network proposals before public consultation closes on Sunday 31 July.

Barnsley Bus Partnership is seeking views on plans that aim to optimise key routes and provide a better coordinated, more efficient and integrated bus network that meets the needs of people living in, working in, and visiting the town.

People can take part in the consultation and find information about the proposals online at travelsouthyorkshire.com/bbp and via paper feedback forms and route maps from customer service desks at Interchanges. Posters are also displayed on Barnsley’s Stagecoach buses.

Feedback will be used to inform bus service changes, which are expected to be implemented in January 2017.

The proposals form part of the aims drawn in Sheffield City Region’s Devolution Deal to improve public transport in our region.

Barnsley Bus Partnership brings together local bus operators Stagecoach Yorkshire, Arriva, TM Travel, Globe Coaches, and Waterson Coaches with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council (BMBC) and South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE).
