Rotherham residents are invited to comment on proposals for changes to a number of the town’s bus services in a public consultation until Monday 2nd December.

The proposals include better coordinated timetables across Rotherham’s bus services and more services to some areas, with the intention of improving punctuality and building a bus network for Rotherham that best meets customer needs.

People can give their views online at rotherhambuspartnership.co.uk or by filling in a questionnaire, available on most buses or from Travel South Yorkshire Information Centres in Rotherham, Dinnington and Meadowhall.

A drop in session for people to give feedback was held in Dinnington on Thursday 14th November and there will be another one held at the Kiveton Park and Wales Village Hall on Tuesday 19th November from 2pm to 5pm.

The changes are being proposed by Rotherham Bus Partnership, which brings together Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council, South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive and local bus operators First South Yorkshire, Stagecoach, Powells and TM Travel in a bid to make the bus network more simple, flexible and convenient.
