I was recently updated by South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive on the planned changes for local bus services later this year. These will mean timetable changes for the 20, 56, 75/76 and 86 buses, and the reinstatement of the number 19.

I’m really pleased SYPTE have agreed to reinstate the 19 and connect up Chancet Wood and Woodseats again – it’s a victory for local residents who’ve been fighting for this since 2015.

It will be disappointing to many people that the 20A isn’t planned to return, but please rest assured I’ll keep pushing for improved bus services in the local area.

As your MP I’ll be speaking to SYPTE about the proposals and any comments on the changes are very welcome so I can pass them along. Please contact me with your thoughts, or contact Traveline directly on 01709 515151.
