SYPTE Deputy Interim Director General, David Young, said: “The Sheffield Bus Partnership has been a huge success since it launched in 2012. Millions of extra passengers are using local services, more buses are running on time, complaints are falling and people are benefitting from new links and better frequencies.

“We want to build on the strong foundations developed over the last three years. Feedback from members of the public is vital in helping us to do this, so we can continue to shape the bus network around passenger needs.

“The drop-in sessions and survey provide a great opportunity for the people of Sheffield to tell the Bus Partnership about what they like about their bus services and any areas for improvement.”

The groundbreaking Sheffield Bus Partnership aims to improve the city’s bus offer so that the number of people using it grows. It is providing passengers with a simpler bus network, coordinated timetables, tickets that can be used on buses or trams, more services on many routes, fewer changes to timetables, and more buses with low-floor-access.
