SYPTE Update

We have been sent communication about changes to public transport services in South Yorkshire, with effect from Saturday 21 March.

What changes are being made to bus, tram, tram train, and train services in South Yorkshire? 

Due to the current situation, operators are announcing a reduced service to react to the reduction in customer demand and staff shortages. Information is changing minute by minute, but we are working hard with our partners to ensure that customers are kept up to date with accurate information.

Northern and TransPennine Express have advised that they will be cancelling a number of services due to staff shortages and reduced customer demand. Both operators have stated that the number of cancellations is likely to increase as the situation progresses.

Cancellations will be decided on a daily basis.

How is this being communicated to customers?
