Special bus services will run in Sheffield for a maximum £1 fare on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.

The First and Stagecoach bus services, run as part of Sheffield Bus Partnership, will operate on selected routes on Boxing Day from 7am until around 6.30pm and on New Year’s Day between 8am and 5.30pm.

Sheffield Council is funding the service with £37,000 and Meadowhall shopping centre is paying £2,500 towards earlier servic es on Boxing Day.

Revised bus timetables will operate in Sheffield from Wednesday December 24 until January 2.

“The extra services mean buses will run every day over the festive period, except Christmas Day, giving people a convenient way to get where they need to be”, said Coun Leigh Bramall.
