Give your Views on South Yorkshire's Bus Services

People from across South Yorkshire are being asked for their views on buses which will be used to inform an independent review announced by Mayor of Sheffield City Region, Dan Jarvis, earlier this year. The review will be carried out by a panel (pictured) chaired by Clive Betts MP.

The remit of the panel is to conduct an independent review into the current bus network across South Yorkshire and make recommendations as to how it could be improved.

Mayor Jarvis said: “I know buses are a lifeline for communities across South Yorkshire. Bus services is one of the main topics of conversation that people raise with me as Mayor. But at the same time, over the last decade there has been an 18 per cent decrease in the number of people using buses in our region.

“I would encourage people from across South Yorkshire’s communities, whether they currently use the bus or not, to have their say in our public consultation. Only then can we gain the best possible picture of current services, and ensure that any changes we make are changes that will be of benefit to our residents, our businesses, and generations to come.”

Clive Betts MP said: “We also really want to hear from those who don’t currently use the bus, as to why they don’t use it and what improvements could be made that might consider them to change the way they travel.”

“The panel won’t be able to resolve issues with individual bus routes or services. But, based on the evidence from stakeholders and responses from the public, we will be make recommendations to the Mayor of the Sheffield City Region on what improvements could be made, long-term and what resources would be needed to implement these improvements.”

The consultation questions centre on topics such as preferred modes of transport, the type of tickets people prefer to buy, frequency of buses, journey times, reliability and value for money.

The Bus Review survey is available here. Respondents have until 27th September to complete the survey.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

A fantastic presentation thought provoking and good questions from the floor around promoting this film/message to the general public not just professionals.
