Buses are a very versatile way of getting around South Yorkshire. You can go a few stops down to the shops, commute to college, or get the last bus back from a gig. Buses are starting to be fitted with free WiFi services, so you can stay up to date with social networks and check your emails whilst you travel.
Trains are a quick way of getting around South Yorkshire. The local college doesn’t do that course you want? Have a look at other colleges in South Yorkshire, the rail network makes travelling between South Yorkshire's main towns quick and easy.
The tram network in Sheffield links five park and ride sites with the busy city centre and gives easy access to the rail station, shopping areas, both of Sheffield’s universities, the Cathedral, sports arenas and many new popular entertainment venues.
It’s great value - Use your MegaTravel card or 16 – 18 Student Pass to travel for just 70p on the bus or tram and half fare on local rail fares on the train.
It keeps you independent - No asking for lifts or waiting around for other people, plan your journey and go.
It’s safe - You are more likely to be involved in a road traffic accident in a car than on public transport. CCTV also operates on buses, trams and trains for added safety.
It’s clean and green - Public transport (buses, trains & trams), emit 4% of the total transportation CO2 emissions. Many bus companies have schemes to reduce the amount of polution they produce. For example First’s Drivegreen and Stagecoach’s Carbon Trust Standard award.
It’s quick - Why sit in traffic when you can be on a train on your way to the next town? More bus priority traffic systems mean you beat the queues of standing traffic. The tram means you can avoid parking in a busy city.
