Stagecoach ask for feedback on suggested changes to Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster Services
Stagecoach Yorkshire is asking the public for their thoughts to suggested changes for multiple services in Barnsley, Rotherham and Doncaster.
A consultation is being held from Thursday 9 May to Thursday 6 June, giving people the opportunity to share their views on suggested changes to the service.
Stagecoach is considering a number of changes to make journeys more reliable, including introducing a new 49 service running between the village of Sprotbrough and Doncaster. The new half hourly service will run on Monday to Saturday during the daytime with the 219 service serving the same route in the evenings and on Sunday as it currently does.
The newly revised 219 service will run through the daytime will continue to run hourly between Barnsley and Doncaster. The daytime service will run from Barnsley to Great Houghton then direct to Thurnscoe, serving both Thurnscoe East and West, providing a faster, more direct service for passengers.
There are further proposed changes to help service reliability, including the 22x between Barnsley and Rotherham, service 1 between Barnsley and Staincross, service 11 between Barnsley and Athersley North and the Doncaster-White Rose and Park and Ride service.
After feedback about the new X6 service, Stagecoach propose to change the current route in Waverley to travel along Mitchell Way, Stephenson Way, Lescar Road and Highfield Lane to serve more customers in this area.
John Young, Commercial Director at Stagecoach said: “The consultation is a perfect opportunity for the public to share their thoughts on the proposed changes to a number of services, and the handy online consultation makes this even easier for people to have their say.
“We take customer feedback very seriously at Stagecoach and would invite all customers to have their say.”
To take part in this consultation, passengers are encouraged to complete the freepost form, which will be available on bus services from 9 May, and post it to Stagecoach. To complete the consultation online and for more information visit www.stagecoachbus.com
