Sheffield Connect up to every 10 mins

Get ready to connect

Getting around Sheffield city centre is about to get quicker and easier thanks to a brand-new bus service called Sheffield Connect launching on Monday 1 August.

Sheffield Connect will provide free or low-cost travel for everyone around the city centre to make it easy to get around and to support local businesses. The service will run a circular route between Sheffield Interchange and Moorfoot, calling at key public transport hubs along the way to help you connect smoothly with other bus services, trams, and trains – as well as your favourite Sheffield retail and leisure destinations.

Sheffield Connect will be free to ride if you have a valid senior, disabled, or Zoom travel pass. And you can ride for free if you have a bus, tram or train ticket which bought within South Yorkshire that’s valid on the day you travel. If you don’t have a pass or a valid travel ticket, you’ll pay a simple £1 flat fare for a single journey - cash and contactless accepted.

The dedicated city centre route will run up to every 10 minutes Monday to Saturday, from 9.30am to 6pm, and up to every 10 minutes on Sundays from 9.30am to 4pm. Leopold Street and Surrey Street will be reopened on the new route and buses will get priority on Arundel Gate, making journeys faster and improving air quality on one of the city’s busiest roads.

In total, 27 zero-emission buses will be rolled out across South Yorkshire to help improve air quality across the region.

Sheffield Connect will be delivered in partnership with South Yorkshire Mayoral Combined Authority and Sheffield City Council, as part of the Connecting Sheffield City Centre programme and wider Heart of the City development.

We look forward to welcoming you on board.
