    The Sheffield bus partnership are launching a completely revised bus network on 1st November along with some reduced price multi-operator tickets.

    The new network was out to public consultation during July, they are now busy making tweaks based on feedback and carving the network up between operators.

    I guess registrations should start coming soon.

    Some of the proposals have proved controversial among users so it will be interesting to see the final plan.

    Information about the bus partnership can be found here:

    The proposed new network details have been taken down from that website now the consultation has closed but the South Sheffield map can still be found on one of the local community action group websites...

    As I mostly use buses that originate in Chesterfield there seems to be little change for me.

    The rest of it seems to be a bit 'change for changes sake' re changing all the bus numbers etc. It's going to be quite annoying to find the equivalent bus for a while :(

    Still nothing on Park Grange Road. Massive lack of ambition on the part of First, all it would take would be redirecting 1 of the many buses that run down Granville Road down there.

    There are trams every 10 minutes or better already over providing for the demand there. First used to run a service prior to 2012 but passenger numbers were too low for the service to be viable.
    --- old post above --- --- new post below ---
    An amended plan taking on board some of the feedback from consultation has been put forward for SYPTA to sign off at a meeting on 1st September. There are also some further changes to route numbers in order to reduce potential confusion.

    Here is a link to the paperwork for the meeting which has been placed in the public realm. Appendix A is the original proposal, Appendix B shows the changes, Appendix E shows which routes will see more than one operator running co-ordinated services on a route.

    Now into week two of the new network, still LOTS of complaints about buses being late or cancelled and overcrowding, single deckers where doubles used to operate and cuts to evening services!

    So far, complete shambles!
