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 or by filling in a questionnaire, available on most buses or from Travel South Yorkshire Information Centres in Rotherham, Dinnington and Meadowhall.

Passengers can also give their feedback in person and get more information by attending drop-in sessions.

These are taking place at Harthill Village Hall on Thursday 7th November from 4pm to 8pm, Rotherham Interchange on Monday 11th November from 9am to 12pm and Tuesday 12th November from 12pm to 3pm, North Anston Parish Hall on Wednesday 13th November from 4pm to 6pm, Dinnington Interchange on Thursday 14th November from 11am to 1pm and 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 (RMBC), South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), 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.
