Strategy and plans

This page provides an introduction to Sheffield City Region's transport strategies and the plans that have been developed to help deliver this. 

Sheffield City Region Transport Strategy

SYPTE is part of the South Yorkshire Local Transport Plan (SYLTP) partnership. The SYLTP partnership is made up of the four Local Authorities in South Yorkshire (Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield) and the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE).

Our transport strategy covers the Sheffield City Region, which includes the four districts of South Yorkshire and five districts in the East Midlands. The different parts of the Sheffield City Region function together as a single economic area.

Visit the South Yorkshire Local Transport Plan (SYLTP) website for more details.

Public Transport Action Plan

The Public Transport Action Plan (PTAP) forms a key component of the third South Yorkshire Local Transport Plan (LTP3). It sets out the actions that public transport partners will deliver to support the achievement of key priorities set out in the Sheffield City Region (SCR) Transport Strategy. It is particularly focused on how public transport can support South Yorkshire’s economic, environmental and social aspirations. It includes the four separate strategies of bus, tram, train and Park & Ride that previously existed alongside the second Local Transport Plan (LTP2).

Corporate Equality Scheme

SYPTE takes equality and diversity very seriously and is committed to offer support at an exemplary standard. As employers we aim to ensure that there is no prejudice or discrimination against any protected group including gender, disability, age, sexuality, race, religion and sexual orientation.

SYPTE’s Equality Group has produced an ‘Our Commitment to Equality’ document. The document reiterates the promises we’ve made and will adhere to, confirms our initiatives, and the services and support we provide. Follow the link below to view Our Commitment to Equality.

Customer Strategy

Our Customer Strategy aims to make sure that the insights of our customer work are ingrained in all of our organisation’s strategies and delivery plans. To achieve our customer vision, the next 10 years will require a commitment from our organisation to put the customer first. Our Customer Strategy document is structured into two parts:

Part 1 - Sets out the high level strategic approach and principles we will work to within the next 10 years (1.4MB pdf) 

 Part 2 - States the short to medium term needs based on customer feedback and sets the immediate priorities for the organisation, which are revised on an annual basis (868KB pdf)



Retail Strategy

Changes over the next decade to the high street, digital retail and consumer technology will mean that public transport providers have to adapt their own offerings in order to remain relevant to customers. Our Retail Strategy considers consumer needs and expectations, with a 10 year horizon across multiple channels, for the delivery of SYPTE services and products.
