If you are new to Sheffield you will soon discover that many buses go through the town from one side of the city to the other rather than to and from the main interchange/bus station near the railway station. This means that in the city centre there are areas where a number of bus routes converge that act as a series of mini bus interchanges.
If you are staying in Sheffield for some time and planning to travel by bus you will find that it helps a lot to make the acquaintance of the enquiry desk in a bus interchange or Travel Centre, collect a bus route map and individual bus time tables of the most useful routes. Those who are 'map-phobic' can always rely on the enquiry staff. There should be maps of bus routes available.
The main bus service is First Mainline. The Company Stagecoach has recently commenced competing but they currently do not always operate in the evening or on Sundays.
Remember that both bus routes and bus timetables can change at ANY time during the year and the following information may become out of date very quickly. If you are looking for bus services, always check with the on-line time table by entering the route number/service number into the time table search engineclick here. Alternatively ring Traveline (on 01709 515151) between 07.00 and 22.00 7 days a week for details of ALL transport in South Yorkshire.
Please always check both travel times and also check that the bus route number you want is on the bus stand you are waiting in. All details given below are given in good faith and an change without warning.
Since the destination boards are not always changed correctly at the end of a run, it is always wise to check with the driver when you are getting on the bus if you are not used to the route!
