Easter public transport changes


Bus and tram services in South Yorkshire will be running to revised timetables over the Easter bank holiday weekend.

Most buses and trams will run a Saturday service on Good Friday 3 April, and a Sunday service on Easter Sunday and Easter Monday, 5 and 6 April 2015.

The latest phase of Supertram rail replacement works is now underway between Hillsborough and Infirmary Road. Additional engineering work taking place in the City Centre on Easter Sunday will mean Blue and Yellow routes from Halfway and Meadowhall will combine to run as the Green route, providing direct services between Meadowhall and Halfway.

Yellow and Blue Route services in the City Centre will be replaced by B5 and Y5 bus services that will link to the Green route, diverting to serve West Street and Granville Road where buses and trams will connect. Buses will stop on Shrewsbury Road. There will be no service to or from Netherthorpe Road on Easter Sunday.

Passengers can find out more information on any tram changes by visiting the Stagecoach Supertram website at supertram.com.

Most rail services will operate to a normal timetable over the weekend. Passengers travelling by train should check with Network Rail or their operating company for any planned engineering work or local disruptions.

Travel South Yorkshire Information Centres will be closed on Sunday 5 and Monday 6 April.
