Bus service changes in South Yorkshire from Sunday 12 May 2024

Bus service changes in South Yorkshire from Sunday 12 May 2024

As you are aware, bus companies in South Yorkshire are free to decide where and when they will run services. South Yorkshire’s bus network has seen significant reductions in the last year due to reduced passenger demand.

We have worked with operators and local authorities to minimise the impact on our communities and First South Yorkshire have listened to feedback from their public engagement events, which took place in March/April 2024

What services are affected?

From Sunday 12 May, some services in South Yorkshire will see minor changes to their timetables to improve service provision and, with funding from Derbyshire County Council, to provide a replacement service for Killamarsh. Changes include:

Derbyshire changes:

  • 80/80a (Hulleys) – Crystal Peaks – Killamarsh – Chesterfield – Bakewell – the service will be revised to run between Chesterfield Royal Hospital and Bakewell only. Journeys will no longer run between Crystal Peaks and Chesterfield Royal Hospital.

Following discussions between SYMCA, Derbyshire County Council (DCC) and the bus operators, it has been agreed that DCC will fund an extension of First service 120 to Killamarsh (see below).

  • 120/120k (First) – Fulwood – Sheffield – Crystal Peaks – Halfway – Norwood – one journey per hour will run as service 120k and extend beyond Crystal Peaks to run through to Norwood via Sothall (Harland Avenue), Holbrook and Killamarsh, reinstating journeys lost by the withdrawal of services 80/80a.

South Yorkshire changes:

  • Service 208 (First) – Sheffield – Brinsworth – Whiston – an additional journey will be introduced at 18:30 to assist with access to employment
  • Service 376 (First) – Doncaster – Clay Lane – an additional journey will be introduced at 05:35 to assist with access to employment
  • Service 387 (First) – Doncaster – Moorends – an additional journey will be introduced at 04:57 to assist with access to employment.
