From next month several of Sheffield and Rotherham's bus services will be altered in what company bosses say is an attempt to 'assist with punctuality'.

The changes will come into effect on Sunday, September 2.

A spokesman for First Buses said on their website: "We are making a number of changes in Sheffield and Rotherham to assist with punctuality and as a result of the end of summer reductions.

"Service 1a will now teminate at Chapeltown instead of High Green due to demand. Stagecoach service 1 will continue to run to High Green every 12 minutes."

These are the bus services that will be altered from September 2:

- 1a: High Green – City – Herdings

Revised to run every 12 minutes (pre-May) but Monday-Saturday journeys will terminate at Chapeltown instead of High Green.
