Sheffield City Centre changes

To help stop the spread of Covid-19 and support social distancing, Sheffield City Council is making some changes to the city centre.
By widening footpaths, creating cycle lanes and closing some city centre roads to traffic, the council is taking action to keep people safe. These measures will help people to maintain safe social distancing in busy areas and will enable walking and cycling as an alternative to public transport.
We’ve worked with bus operators to respond quickly to these changes by diverting some city centre bus routes and providing alternative bus stops for passengers.

From Sunday 14 June, part of Pinstone Street will be closed to all traffic, except pedestrians and cyclists. This means the following bus stops will no longer be in use:

  • Pinstone Street - TH1, TH2 and TH3 (next to the Peace Gardens) and MH1 (Moorhead)

  • Leopold Street - CH1 (outside All Bar One) and CH2 (outside Virgin Money)

  • High Street - HS5 (outside RBS) with services using HS4 instead, HS3 (outside McDonalds) with services using HS2 instead and services normally using HS2 (outside Sports Direct) will use new stops on Arundel Gate

We’re posting information at city centre bus stops to help you find where you can now get your bus from. 


Services affected by these changes are:

  • Service 1 towards Batemoor

  • Service 6 towards the city centre

  • Services 11 and 11a towards Herdings

  • Services 30 and 30a towards Crystal Peaks

  • Service 51 towards Charnock and Lodge Moor

  • Services 52 and 52a towards Woodhouse

  • Services 75, 76 and 76a towards Batemoor and Lowedges

  • Services 81, 82, 83, 83a and 88 towards Ecclesall Road

  • Service 86 towards Lowedges

  • Services 95 and 95a towards Meadowhall

  • Services 97 and 98 towards Totley and Totley Brook

  • Service 120 towards Crystal Peaks and Halfway

  • Service 120 towards Ranmoor and Fulwood

  • Services 273, 274 and 275 towards Castleton and Bakewell

  • Service X5 towards Dinnington

We understand that, to begin with, these changes may cause some inconvenience. But we’re doing everything we can to allow people who need to make essential journeys to travel safely, and to support Sheffield City Council’s efforts to prevent the spread of the virus.
