More disruption for passengers in Sheffield as weekend buses are cancelled again
Bus passengers in Sheffield are facing another weekend of disruption as services are cancelled again across the city.
Over recent weeks, buses have been cancelled in Sheffield due to staff shortages, causing issues for people who rely on public transport.
This weekend is set to be no different, with a number of cancellations already announced.
Stagecoach warned last month that there is a lack of qualified drivers in the county.
The firm is recruiting new drivers and has asked passengers for “patience” but has warned of cancellations until staffing levels improve.
The following cancellations had been announced by 9am today:
- service 1 will not operate High Green-Batemoor-High Green at 12.08, 12.50, 13.38, 13.53, 14.08, 14.20, 15.08, 15.23, 16.05, 16.52, 17.35, 19.07, 20.01, 20.30.
