Changes will be made to buses in Rotherham and across South Yorkshire, following a public consultation on how often and where services should run.

Nearly 1,000 people gave their views on the proposals, including improvements to punctuality, frequency and routes.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) Executive Director, Stephen Edwards, said:

“Service changes that are shaped by passengers, wherever possible, help to make sure local bus partnerships can continue to meet community needs. These changes aim to improve the frequency of services on busy corridors, and provide better access to places of employment, education and hospitals.”

Revised timetables will be in place from Sunday 3 March, on services including X78, X1, A1, 13, 23, 27, 29, 31, 34, 37, 66, 72, 74/74a, 111/112, 114, 115, 116, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 140, 141,142, 227, and new services X74 and 208.

The changes coincide with the re-opening of Rotherham Interchange, following a £12m redevelopment scheme.

Full service and timetable information will be available at bus stops, on-board buses and online at:
