Stagecoach has cancelled some buses in South Yorkshire this morning due to a shortage of drivers.

Monday, 27th September 2021, 7:48 am

Stagecoach Yorkshire announced today that due to a ‘staff shortage’ a number services will not be operating.

Last week the public transport provider warned it is facing a lack of qualified drivers in the county.

It thanked passengers for their “patience” while it recruits new drivers, and warned that some routes would be disrupted in the meantime.
