Strategy and plans

This page provides an introduction to Sheffield City Region's transport strategies and the plans that have been developed to help deliver this.


Sheffield City Region Transport Strategy

SYPTE is part of the South Yorkshire Local Transport Plan (SYLTP) partnership, together with Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield local authorities.

Our transport strategy covers the Sheffield City Region, which includes the four local authorities of South Yorkshire plus five districts in the East Midlands. The different parts of the Sheffield City Region function together as a single economic area.


Visit the archived South Yorkshire Local Transport Plan (SYLTP) website for more details.

Corporate Equality Scheme

SYPTE takes equality and diversity very seriously and is committed to offer support at an exemplary standard. As employers we aim to ensure that there is no prejudice or discrimination against any protected group including gender, disability, age, sexuality, race, religion and sexual orientation.

SYPTE’s Equality Group has produced an ‘Our Commitment to Equality’ document. The document reiterates the promises we’ve made and will adhere to, confirms our initiatives, and the services and support we provide. Follow the link below to view Our Commitment to Equality.

Customer Service Strategy

Our Customer Service Strategy aims to re-state our corporate intent to improve the way we operate based on the needs, views and requirements of our customers. It will describe how we will seek the views of all our types of customers to inform new service design or changes to existing services. It will also put in place formal processed for gathering information about our customers so we can better predict changes in their needs based on demographics, and also ensure that we provide equality of access to all the services we provide.

Retail and Information Strategy

Changes over the next decade to the high street, digital retail and consumer technology will mean that public transport providers have to adapt their own offerings in order to remain relevant to customers. Our Retail and Information Strategy considers consumer needs and expectations, with a 10-year horizon across multiple channels, for the delivery of SYPTE services and products.

Public Transport Action Plan

The Public Transport Action Plans (PTAP) formed a key component of the third South Yorkshire Local Transport Plan (LTP3). They set out the actions that public transport partners should deliver to support the achievement of key priorities set out in the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Transport Strategy. They were particularly focused on how public transport could support South Yorkshire’s economic, environmental and social aspirations. They included the four separate strategies of bus, tram, train and Park & Ride that previously existed alongside the second Local Transport Plan (LTP2).
