Transport

Parish Council Public Transport Group
On Thursday, January 10th, 2019 we will be holding a public meeting in the Village Hall at 2.00pm for everyone in our community interested in/concerned about local bus and train travel. Please come and meet members of the Parish Council Public Transport Group , talk to us about what we've been doing and provide your ideas to help us plan what we might try next. For more information see the PDF attachment at the bottom of the page.


SYPTE has confirmed that Yorkshire Tiger have surrendered their contract, that SYPTE had accordingly re-tendered the routes they currently provide, and that Stagecoach will be taking them over with effect from 2nd September 2018. 

This will apply to most of Thurgoland parish bus routes, namely 23 / 23a / 24 / 24a. 

TM Travel will continue to provide their existing Mon - Sat evening and Sunday services for these routes as well as continuing to provide services on route 29.

One change will be that the present additional concession offered by Yorkshire Tiger to bus pass holders of a £1 fare before 9:30am will not be offered by Stagecoach. 

However, Stagecoach offers a different concession not currently offered by Yorkshire Tiger. Bus pass holders travelling to hospital appointments before 09:30am travel free with Stagecoach on production of a hospital appointment letter with the bus pass. 

We are not aware of any other changes at the present time aside from the change of operator. 

Thurgoland is served by five bus routes and by the Sheffield - Barnsley - Huddersfield railway line stopping at Penistone and Silkstone Common
