South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) along with Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) and Sheffield City Council (SCC) are currently working together to introduce Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) between Rotherham and Sheffield.
Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) is an exciting idea to improve public transport. BRT is all about providing an enhanced travel system, which is very comfortable, reliable, and quick.
BRT will provide passengers with a new fleet of buses that will have comfortable interiors and use environmentally friendly engines. High quality bus stops and waiting areas will be provided along the route with options for purchasing tickets before you board the bus. Passengers will also benefit from electronic displays showing up-to-date service information (Real Time Passenger Information) and scheduled timetable information.
The BRT buses would only stop at a limited number of places along the corridor and be given priority at key locations on the road network, making the journey between Rotherham and Sheffield quicker and more convenient.
We realise that if you live in the area and often commute between Rotherham and Sheffield then this exciting new project might be of some interest to you.
