Bus service change proposals for February 2019

images

Through the four bus partnerships in South Yorkshire, local bus operators are seeking views and feedback on proposed changes to the local bus network. 

The proposals include:

  • some major network changes 
  • some improvements in service frequency along key corridors and 
  • improved access to employment. 

There are also some options to consider from local ward councillors and MPs.

The consultation runs from Monday 29 October until Sunday 9 December 2018 and gives you the chance to tell us what you think. 

Your views are important and the partnerships will consider and review all feedback to agree any changes needed before the final network plan is implemented from Sunday 24 February 2019.

How can I take part?

We have broken the consultation down into specific areas/service numbers, and a summary of changes and proposed timetables is available. We would like your thoughts on the proposals in your area. 

Fare and frequency consultation

The current £1 flat fare for adults is not sustainable for this route and is significantly cheaper than all other equivalent journeys on other routes in Doncaster.

We are asking residents and users for their preference in the following two options. We are not changing the route or span of operation (first bus/last bus) in either option

  • Option 1 is to keep the £1 fare for journeys between Emley Drive and Morrisons but increase it to £2 for journeys to and from Doncaster. This change is only for adult single fares.
  • Option 2 is to keep the £1 fare but reduce the service from three buses per hour to two buses per hour. This will reduce operational costs in line with the income we generate and make the service more sustainable in future.

     

    Route and frequency consultation

    Councillors and MPs have asked us to review the service and see if we can make improvements within the currently available resources.

    We are asking residents and users for their preference in the following three options:

    • Option 1 extends the route to better serve the leisure centre and new St James retail park.
    • Option 2 makes a route change to improve access to better serve areas in Greenhill and provide links to Meadowhead and Jordanthorpe. To achieve this, the service will take longer and so will operate less than every hour.
    • Option 3 builds on Option 2 and extends the route to incorporate Chancet Wood. This route is longer and so we can provide the service within the existing resource we will amend the timetable to increase the number of journeys between Greenhill, Chancet Wood and Jordanthorpe. We will also need to reduce the frequency of the service between Bradway and Dore to every two hours.
    • You will find maps that show these options to help you respond to the consultation when you progress through the survey.

    Route change consultation

    Councillors, MPS and community groups have asked us to review the service and see if we can make improvements at Foxhill.

    Any changes we make will have to be achievable within the current, available resources. We are therefore asking residents and users for their preference in the following two options.

    • Option 1 is to leave the service unchanged.
    • Option 2 is to change the route between Kilner Way and Parson Cross (ASDA) to operate via Halifax Road, Wilcox Road, Foxhill Crescent, Foxhill Road and Cowper Avenue. As this route is longer and requires more time than the current route, buses will terminate at Angel Street instead of Sheffield Interchange and will no longer serve Arundel Gate in the city centre. In Parson Cross the service will operate more directly from ASDA along Wordsworth Avenue to Remington Road instead of Deerlands Avenue, Holgate Avenue and Margetson Road.

    You will find a map showing the option 2 proposal compared to the current service (option 1) to help you respond to the consultation when you progress through the survey.

    We’re proposing some network changes in the Kimberworth, Greasbrough and Thorpe Hesley areas of Rotherham. This is so we can make the network sustainable with current resources and enhance some key employment corridor services, such as services X1/X10 and X78. We are therefore asking residents and users for feedback on the changes to help us agree a finalised network.

    We’re proposing the key changes below, but you can find full details within the survey.

    • Service X78 increases to five buses per hour instead of four (every 12 minutes instead of 15 minutes).
    • Services 135, 136, 137 and 138 will provide the Kimberworth and Thorpe Helsey services with service 136 partially replacing service 227.
    • Service 137 will have some timetable changes to coordinate with the new service 135, 136 and 138.
    • Services 139, 140, 141 and 142 will have revised routes and reduced frequency, and service 138 will increase in frequency and cover some parts of the amended network.
    • Service 66 will be replaced by the revised services 135 and 136 in Thorpe Hesley with new links provided to Wentworth, Elsecar and Hoyland to improve access to amenities and connections with local bus and train services in Barnsley.
    • Service 227 will be partially replaced by the new service 136 via Thorpe Hesley, but services will be lost in Nether Hague and along Cortworth Lane.

Part of the current service X1 will have a reduced service to allow coordination with service X10. However, a bus every seven/eight minutes will be provided on the common sections.
