Buses for Sheffield to bring bus services together
Sheffield bus companies will reaffirm their commitment to improving bus travel and positioning the bus as the primary choice for local commutes.
“Buses for Sheffield” - a continuation of the successful work that has already been completed under the Sheffield Bus Partnership – is being launched to help unify all Sheffield bus services under one brand identity. Made up of Sheffield’s bus service providers, the common goal is to provide efficient, accessible and reliable bus services for the city.
Buses for Sheffield hopes to encourage bus travel by making bus information easier to understand, as all bus service information will be under one brand. It will also help to raise awareness of the travel benefits already available in the city, such as;
- CityBus tickets, which can be used all day, on any bus in Sheffield regardless of which bus company runs the service, and CityWide tickets can be used on all bus and tram services in Sheffield.
- Coordinated bus service timetables, which means all timetable information is available in one place, regardless of which bus company operates the service.
- Fewer, coordinated service changes, which means that any bus service timetable or route changes will occur at the same time.
Speaking about the launch the partners from Buses for Sheffield, said: “Everyone involved in Buses for Sheffield believes that there is room to improve bus travel across the city. We want to make bus travel in Sheffield more efficient, accessible and dependable for all.
“This shared goal has led to the creation of the new Buses for Sheffield vision and as a collective group, we will be investing in creating one common identity, to help make bus travel and information more consistent across the city.”
The Buses for Sheffield brand will start to appear on buses, at bus stops and in Sheffield Interchange from March. For more information visit www.busesforsheffield.com
