As you may be aware South Yorkshire’s Mayor, Oliver Coppard, is campaigning for a fair funding deal for public transport in South Yorkshire.
Oliver is doing everything he can to get the government to give us that fair funding deal, because bus services are vital for the economy, so we can see family, get to school or work, and allow people to access opportunities. That is even more true when we are facing a climate and cost of living crisis. We should be investing in buses, not managing their decline.
He is determined to fight these cuts, so we can have the public transport system we deserve.
As part of this campaign, Oliver is visiting some of the communities that have been hardest hit by service cuts and transport connectivity issues and holding several public meetings to explain in detail why we’re in this position and what we can do about it.
One of these meetings will be held at The Thomas Chambers Newton Memorial Hall, Cowley Lane, Chapeltown, Sheffield S35 1SX on Wednesday 1 November – registration will be from 5.30pm for a 6pm start. It would be great to see you there to join the conversation.
Oliver wants to make sure he can speak to as many members of our community as possible and would appreciate your help to raise awareness of the events especially the one in your area.
