Summer school holiday bus timetable changes in Sheffield
A number of bus timetable changes will be introduced in Sheffield this summer during the school holidays.
To reflect the alterations in traffic conditions, Stagecoach Yorkshire’s services 1 and 25 will operate up to every 15 minutes on weekday daytimes throughout the summer holidays.
Service 52 will operate up to every 12 minutes on Monday to Friday daytimes. Combined with First South Yorkshire’s 52a, it means there will be a bus every six minutes.
There will be minor changes to timetables on services 86 and 88 to reflect the summer traffic, but the frequency will remain the same.
From Monday to Friday during the day, service 120 will operate up to every 12 minutes. Combined with First South Yorkshire’s 120, it provides a bus service every six minutes.
Changes to the timetable to improve punctuality are also being introduced on services 57 and 265.
John Young, commercial director of Stagecoach Yorkshire, said: “During the school holidays, we see a natural drop-off in the amount of traffic on the roads. These timetable alterations are designed to reflect this change and take into account revised journey times with fewer vehicles operating over the summer.”
The changes come into effect from Sunday 17 July.
