Have your say

Bus operator Stagecoach is introducing a number of changes to its services over the summer months.

The firm will operate a revised timetable on services 52, 87, 88 and 120 while schools are closed.

Stagecoach Yorkshire’s managing director, Paul Lynch, said: “We see a natural drop in levels of congestion on the roads in Sheffield during the summer months due to school holidays. We’re introducing a number of changes to services to account for this reduction in traffic levels.”

The number 52 bus, provided jointly by Stagecoach and First, will run every five minutes Monday to Saturday between Hillsborough, Sheffield city centre and Handsworth.

A 10-minute frequency will be provided beyond Handsworth to Woodhouse, and on Sundays buses will run every 10 minutes during the day and 15 minutes in the evening.

During the holidays service 87, between High Green and Lowedges, will operate every 12 minutes during daytime hours Monday to Saturday.

A revised timetable will operate on bus number 120, between Halfway and Fulwood, during daytime hours Monday to Saturday.

There will be a combined five-minute frequency between Crystal Peaks, Sheffield city centre and the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, and a 10-minute frequency beyond Crystal Peaks to Halfway and beyond the Hallamshire to Fulwood.

During the evening and on Sundays, buses will operate from Halfway through the city centre to Fulwood every 10 minutes.

Stagecoach said there will be ‘minor timetable changes’ to the 88 from Ecclesfield to Bents Green, and the 25 from Woodhouse to Bradway.
