Travel South Yorkshire logo


We’re working to build the sustainable transport network South Yorkshire needs and deserves.

We’re creating a transport system that works for everyone, connecting people to the places they want to go, within South Yorkshire, as well as nationally and internationally. Our transport system will be safe, reliable, clean, green and affordable.

Bus Franchising Scheme

South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) has authorised the assessment of a proposed bus franchising scheme in South Yorkshire.   The notice of intention, confirmed on 4 March 2022, sets in motion the legally-required work to see whether a franchising model – which would bring regulation of routes, frequencies, fares, and tickets under local control – could help efforts to transform the region’s transport.    Read the Notice of intention to prepare a franchising assessment (PDF, 100kb)   Under a franchising scheme, accountability for bus services would transfer from private operators to SYMCA.   The assessment of bus franchising follows the approval of a formal Enhanced Bus Partnership Scheme (PDF, 107Kb), in response to the government’s National Bus Strategy (Bus Back Better), to deliver the region’s Bus Service Improvement Plan (PDF, 5Mb).   The initial Enhanced Bus Partnership agreement between SYMCA and local bus operators will remain in place for an initial period of between 3 and 5 years, allowing progress to be made on bus improvements at the same time as the formal assessment of bus franchising is undertaken.

Transport Strategy & Vision

The Department for Transport (DfT) has mandated that all local transport authorities are required to review and update their statutory Local Transport Plans (LTPs) to align with current national and local priorities, and to provide a more consistent basis for determining future investment priorities. As one of our core statutory duties, SYMCA is working closely with our four local authority partners with the aim of having a preliminary draft Strategy and Implementation document(s) in place by Summer 2024.

More information will follow on the details of public and stakeholder workshops and a formal public consultation on SYMCA’s Vision.

South Yorkshire Bus Review

The Bus Review Report, which was concluded before the Coronavirus pandemic, took into consideration the experiences and feedback from 5,900 members of the public, bus users, community groups, businesses and interest groups, of the impact poor and unreliable bus services have had on their lives.

This evidence, as well as evidence from bus operators, local authorities, the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) and others, has contributed towards the findings and a number of recommendations aimed at providing passengers with a bus service that meets their needs.

South Yorkshire Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP)

Buses play a vital role in creating a stronger, greener and fairer South Yorkshire. Buses connect people to jobs, education, shops, health, leisure, family and friends; they are part of the fundamental fabric that shapes economic and social cohesion in our places and communities. 

In March 2021, the Government launched ‘Bus Back Better’ – a National Bus Strategy for England. This Strategy set out a requirement for local transport authorities to prepare and publish a Bus Service Improvement Plan (BSIP) by 31 October 2021, with the aim of making bus the mode of choice for everyone.  

South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority’s BSIP responds to the priorities highlighted in the South Yorkshire Bus Review and outlines our ambitious plans for improving the region’s bus services.  The BSIP lays the groundwork for the Enhanced Partnership agreement between SYMCA and the bus operators, which will include a clear vision and plan for the delivery of our joint ambitions, together with the actions required to achieve a world class bus network fit for the future.

We want to make the bus offer the best value, with bus priority and other infrastructure changes to make journeys quicker. We want to improve the customer experience, provide better passenger information and journey planning support with ‘turn up and go’ options, and introduce zero emission buses to make travel cleaner and greener towards a net-zero future. 

To find out more, read the South Yorkshire Bus Service Improvement Plan (PDF, 5Mb)

For transparency, we have published a notice of the names of bus operators objecting to proposed enhanced partnership plan and enhanced partnership scheme. 

Read the Notice of names of operators objecting (PDF, 113Kb)

South Yorkshire Enhanced Partnership

The Enhanced Partnership Board has committed to a customer charter – the South Yorkshire Bus Promise – which outlines the service that bus users should be able to expect from their network.  The South Yorkshire Bus Promise includes a number of commitments and future aspirations to address passenger concerns.  It will help the Board guide improvements in the system and offer a framework for review and reporting of progress against agreed commitments. The Board will develop a delivery plan to ensure these commitments can be honoured. 

  • South Yorkshire Bus Promise (Doc,65kb)

 At the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority Meeting on 21 March 2022, the Enhanced Partnership Plan and Enhanced Partnership Scheme – which set out our ambitions to improve bus services in South Yorkshire – were formally agreed from 1 April 2022. The Plan and Scheme came into operation on 10 June 2022. 

We ran a public consultation on our Enhanced Partnership Plan and Scheme from Friday 7 January until Sunday 20 February 2022. The Enhanced Partnership for South Yorkshire  allows local leaders to work together with operators to improve ticketing, routes, and frequency of services across the region.

Read the Statutory Notice which states that a South Yorkshire Enhanced Partnership has been made, along with details of the Enhanced Partnership Plan and Enhanced Partnership Scheme below:

  • Statutory Notice (PDF, 58kb)
  • Enhanced Partnership Plan (PDF, 4.6mb)
  • Enhanced Partnership Scheme (Revised 30 Sept 2022, PDF, 233kb)

The Enhanced Partnership will came into effect on 10 June 2022, and we are working on delivering the outputs in the Enhanced Partnership Plan and Scheme, subject to funding availability.

Active Travel

Here in South Yorkshire we are passionate about active travel and how we can improve people’s lives and wellbeing.

Ed Clancy OBE, triple Olympic cycling champion, joined us in February 2023 as South Yorkshire’s new Active Travel Commissioner . Ed’s priority is to improve the region’s walking and cycling networks, so everyone feels safe and able to walk or cycle. 

To find out more about our ambitions plans for the cycling and walking in South Yorkshire visit our Active Travel section .

Transforming Cities Fund

Ambitious proposals for the future of the South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority's transport network were submitted to the government’s Transforming Cities Fund in November 2019.

The bid, for up to £220m in funding, focused on three large areas which could most benefit from significant improvements across rail, public transport and active travel schemes. In March 2020, the Department for Transport confirmed that we had been successful in securing £166m through the Transforming Cities Fund.

The three areas the programme focuses on are the River Don “corridor” between Sheffield city centre and the Unity site north of Doncaster; the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District (AMID) on the border of Sheffield and Rotherham; and the Dearne Valley Corridor.

Read more on the Transforming Cities fund page .

City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement

South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) was awarded £570 million to deliver increased infrastructure capacity, and support growth and productivity through the investment and delivery of the five-year City Region Sustainable Transport Settlement (CRSTS). 

This funding will build on the previous successful Transforming Cities Fund programme to focus on investing in improving the standards of our public transport system to unlock opportunities, drive patronage growth and strengthen the role of public transport in supporting economic growth. We will accelerate the decarbonisation of our transport system by offering greater modal choice over private vehicles and invest in the transition to a zero-carbon transport system and will continue to invest Active Travel Funding to build an active travel network so that everyone who wants to walk and cycle around the region feels safe and able to do so.

  • Read the CRSTS delivery plans for each city region , 29 July 2022 (Open Document Spreadsheet format).

Network Maintenance

Network North Roads Resurfacing Fund

 From the Network North allocations announced by Government in 2023 SYMCA will receive additional funding for local highways maintenance, particularly for the resurfacing of carriageways, cycleways, and footways to prevent defects from occurring. We will also tackle other priorities, such as lighting, and keeping local bridges and other highway structures open and safe.  Initially this award is for £3.998m to be spent across 2023/24 and 2024/25 but the longer-term programme could be worth considerably more over the following 9 years.

SYMCA and the local authorities have already committed £65m from our CRSTS allocation to support maintenance of all our highway network assets.  This additional allocation will help us to further reduce the backlog of maintenance required making journeys safer, smoother and more reliable.

We have produced a summary plan to explain the work that will be undertaken, regular updates on this will be provided to Government to demonstrate the importance of the work being delivered.
