Business park bus connection

Have your say

A BUS route into Sheffield is to be altered to take in a business park as part of improvements planned by Stagecoach Yorkshire.

From Monday, January 30, the 88 Ecclesfield-to-city centre-to-Bents Green service will extend from The Common, Ecclesfield, to Smithywood Business Park, a 50-acre development just off junction 35 of the M1.

Running along Nether Lane, it will no longer use Mill Road or Church Street in Ecclesfield.

Other changes to Stagecoach’s Sheffield network include earlier first buses in both directions on the 79 Ecclesfield-to-city centre-to-Batemoor service and also between Ecclesfield and Low Edges on the 87 High Green-to-city centre-to-Lowedges route.

There are also significant changes to the Monday to Friday timetable of the Sheffield to Barnsley 265 via Ecclesfield and Chapeltown, with buses leaving Sheffield Interchange at 10 and 40 minutes past the hour during the day.
