Members of the public are set to be consulted on ‘ambitious’ plans to overhaul Sheffield’s bus network thanks to the Sheffield City Region’s ‘devolution deal’.

Sheffield Bus Partnership wants to improve key routes into the city centre and remove excess services.

It says changes will ‘keep traffic flowing, aid faster bus journey times and minimise congestion and pollution’.

It also said there would be ‘smart ticketing’, as well as real-time information improvements.

The consultation will be held from July 6 to 31 online at travelsouthyorkshire.com/sbp.

Consultation events will also be held across Sheffield, including at: Woodseats Library, on Monday, from 4-6.30pm; Meadowhall Interchange, on Wednesday, from 4-6.30pm; Bradway Community Hall, on Friday, July 10, from 4-7pm; Chapeltown Community Centre, on Saturday, July 11, from 12.15-2.15pm; Ecclesfield Library, on Monday, July 13, from 4-6.30pm; Fox Hill Involve Community Hub, on Wednesday, July 15, from 4-7pm; Firth Park Centre For Life, on Wednesday, July 15, from 4-6.30pm, Woodhouse Library, on Thursday, July 16, from 3-5.30pm, and Sheffield Interchange, on Friday, July 17, from 4-6.30pm.
