Sheffield Bus Partnership brings together Sheffield City Council, South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), and local bus operators in a bid to improve the city’s bus offer.
It provides customers with a simpler bus network, coordinated timetables, tickets which can be used on buses or trams, more services on many routes, fewer changes to timetables, and more buses with low-floor-access.
