Your bus journey, your choice.
Passengers told us they want their bus travel to be simpler and hassle free. So that's exactly what you can now expect - thanks to a new partnership between First, Stagecoach and South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive called Optio.
How does Optio make your bus travel easier?
The partnership means you can catch any participating bus along Optio Red routes using an Optio Red Day or Week ticket. Whatever the Operator, catch the next Optio Red bus with an Optio Red ticket.
One ticket takes you there - jump on any participating bus along Optio Red routes using your Optio Red Day or Week ticket.
- The next bus is always yours - with your Optio Red ticket, you can catch any participating operators' bus on Optio Red routes.
- Less waiting time - because you can get on any bus, you won't usually have to wait more than 4 to 8 minutes for the next service 52 during the day.
Which buses can you catch?
Using your Optio Red Day or Week ticket, you can catch any First or Stagecoach bus on service 52.
Whether you want to travel from Hillsborough to Woodhouse, Sheffield City Centre, Darnall, Handsworth and back again, you can use your Optio Red Day or Week ticket on any Optio Red 52 service.
What tickets are available?
To take advantage of Optio, you just need to ask for an Optio Red Day Ticket - £3.40 or Optio Red Week Ticket - £10.50 from the bus driver when you board.
Once you've bought your ticket, you can relax knowing you're free to catch any bus along the Optio Red routes.
Other First single, day and week tickets are also available.
