They might only have a top speed of 56 miles an hour, but Sheffield’s newest buses have something in common with Formula 1 race cars.

The £160,000 machines have an energy saving braking power system similar to those used by racing champions.

Operator First has unveiled 27 of the buses which will serve passengers riding the services 22 from Woodhouse to Nether Edge and 20/20A Hemsworth to Hillsborough.
