Stephen Edwards, SYPTE executive director, said: “Service changes that are shaped by passengers, wherever possible, help to make sure local bus partnerships can continue to meet community needs.

“Through the consultation we received feedback from customers and councillors and this has helped to inform the decisions made by the local bus partnerships.

“The changes aim to improve the frequency and punctuality of services on busy corridors, and provide better access to places of employment, education and hospitals.”

A new X74 service will also be introduced and run from Sheffield to Parkway Markets, Waverley and Tinsley Park.

The service will run up to every 15 minutes during the morning and afternoon rush-hours.

Changes in Rotherham, will coincide with the reopening of Rotherham Interchange, following a £12 million redevelopment scheme.

In Barnsley, service 227 will run to a revised timetable from March 3.

A new 136 service will be introduced between Rotherham, Thorpe Hesley and Hoyland.

It will run hourly during the day Monday to Saturday.
