New bus routes in South Yorkshire
Posted: 30 Aug 2019
We have some great news from our colleagues in South Yorkshire who have won seven new contracts. As of this weekend, Powells Bus Company will take over six bus routes in the Sheffield area. The routes will be operated on behalf of South Yorkshire Passengers Transport Executive (SYPTE) following a competitive tendering process. The contract will run for three years and has provided eight new full-time driver positions at the Rotherham depot. More details on the routes can be found here.
Powells have also been granted a new three year contract for route A1 in Sheffield. Route details can be found here.
To operate these new routes, Powells have upgraded its fleet with nine single deck buses, complying to the Euro 5 emissions standard to help deliver improved air quality in Sheffield City Region.
