OUR CONSULTATIONS AND ENGAGEMENT

As a public organisation, we want the views of residents, passengers, and other interested organisations when we're considering changes or improvements.

Current consultations and surveys:

Have your say on South Yorkshire's buses

We’re asking for your views to help us with our decision-making about buses. We’d like to know about the journeys you make in South Yorkshire and your priorities for using public money to support bus services.

Enhanced Partnership Consultation

South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority (SYMCA) recently approved plans to improve local bus services through a formal Enhanced Bus Partnership Scheme with bus operators, in response to the government’s National Bus Strategy, Bus Back Better.
 
An Enhanced Partnership for South Yorkshire will allow local leaders to work together with operators to improve ticketing, routes, and frequency of services across the region. It will also allow us to bid for a fair share of £3 billion of national funding pledged by government to encourage local bus use.
 
We have bold ambitions:

  • a cap on daily and weekly fares and free travel for under 18s
  • a faster, more reliable and punctual system
  • a better bus experience
  • a new zero emission bus fleet

We want to ensure the public’s views continue to inform our journey to transform bus services in South Yorkshire. We asked for feedback on our Enhanced Partnership Plan and Scheme in a public consultation which ran from Friday 7 January until Sunday 20 February 2022.
