As a public organisation, we actively encourage and welcome the views of residents, passengers and other interested organisations when we're considering changes and improvements to transport services across South Yorkshire.

We consult and engage with people, businesses and local communities through our Transport User Groups and through public consultations. These consultations may ask for feedback from specific groups or communities or canvas opinion on issues with a region or county-wide impact.

Current consultations from our partners: 

Passengers in the region who use the rail network in and around Manchester are being asked to share their views on plans to improve train services. The new Department for Transport consultation is open to anyone in South Yorkshire who has experience of travelling regularly by train to Manchester, whether for work, leisure or the airport. 

The consultation, which is open until 10 March 2021, asks for feedback on three different options, each designed to give passengers a more reliable service. The agreed option is scheduled to be introduced in May 2022.  Have your say
