Last chance to give views on Sheffield bus changes

19/08/2013

TRANSPORT bosses are reminding people to have their say on proposed changes to some of Sheffield’s bus routes.

Sheffield Bus Partnership is giving people the opportunity to comment on proposals for significant changes to a number of the city’s bus services, with the aim of improving the bus network in response to customer needs. The public consultation closes at midnight on Friday 23 August.

Partnership services we particularly want views on are 11/12, 13/13A, 17, 17A, 20/20A, 25, 35-37, 57, 66, 66A, 81, 82, 85, M92, 95 and SL1. Proposed changes include route and timetable alterations.

People can still give their views online at sheffieldbuspartnership.co.uk or by filling in a questionnaire, available on most buses or at Travel South Yorkshire Information Centres in Sheffield.

Passengers can also discuss their feedback personally and get more information by attending a ‘drop-in session’ at Sheffield Interchange on Wednesday 21 August 4 – 5.30pm.

Sheffield Bus Partnership brings together Stagecoach in Sheffield, First South Yorkshire, Sheffield Community Transport, Sheffield City Council and South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) in a joint bid to make the city’s bus offer more simple, flexible and convenient.

The Partnership launched in October 2012 following public consultation and pledged to conduct a review after a year. The proposed changes take into account customer feedback during the past nine months.
