The Sheffield Bus Partnership, comprising South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, Sheffield City Council, First Group, Stagecoach, TM Travel and SCT recently held a public consultation on proposals for changes to bus routes and frequencies and new ticketing arrangements for travelling across the city.
This followed a three-month Bus Vision public consultation held in 2010 to gain an insight into customers’ aspirations for future bus services. The result was the formation of the Sheffield Bus Partnership to offer customers a better travel experience with a better coordinated network with high quality, reliable and punctual services.
The month-long consultation in June and July 2012 sought members of the public’s views on the Partnership’s revised network and tickets. Acting on feedback from the consultation, the Partnership has made positive changes to 16 of the original route and frequency proposals.
