Sheffield Transport became employee-owned Mainline ...
Some of the above may be incomplete (or just plain wrong!) but, during the competitive nonsense, the passengers had buses coming out of their ears. If you did not mind which outfit was running the bus, turn up and go meant just that - turn up, wait a minute or two and "Pay and Go" - no need to take two buses into the shower.
For a while the simple 95 became complicated. It was linked with various suburban routes and, if fbb remembers correctly became at 94, 95 and 96 continuing beyond Intake. Then all that fun and frolic was jettisoned and the poor old 95 became a simple run from Walkley into the city ...
We are not told how big the hit might be, but fbb guesses that whilst it may be "big" on 52s, 120s and possibly 95s which serve the "proper" Sheffield University, he seriously doubts the size of the "hit" on 1/1A/24/25/78/83/83a/88, none6 of which goes near the big Uni "target" destinations. Maybe the upstart Hallam University also packs up early and loses passengers from its city centre campus?
How many non-student passengers "leave" never to return?
Buses for Sheffield (BfS) was promoted as a policy to attract more people by providing a better service.
There are rumours that a further chunk of BfS publicity will descend on an unsuspecting and hitherto unresponsive Sheffield public at the end of this month. Is is really the best PR to reduce frequencies at the same time?
Buses for Sheffield have co-ordinated Sheffield’s bus services to provide a unified service that works for everyone. By working together, we can offer more frequent bus services (up to every 10 minutes in some cases) on key routes in the city, and provide more efficient services to make life a little easier for our customers.
