TRANSPORT bosses are helping people to find their way to the festivities by public transport this party season with a range of easy-to-use, interactive journey planning tools.
The Travel South Yorkshire website, travelsouthyorkshire.com
, offers innovative information and instructions that make planning a journey by bus, train or tram quick and simple.
It lets passengers access local public transport information, journey planners, interactive public transport maps, ticket finders and ‘how to use’ videos, from home or on the move.
If bad weather impacts on public transport services, Travel South Yorkshire provides live disruption updates to scheduled bus, train and tram services on the website homepage, through the Travel South Yorkshire Twitter account @TravelSYorks
and via interactive kiosks in Travel South Yorkshire interchanges.
Passengers can also sign up at travelsouthyorkshire.com
to get email updates about any changes to their bus service, and find out when their next bus is due using the YourNextBus text message service.
SYPTE Deputy Interim Director General, David Young, said: “We work hard to understand our customers’ requirements and best meet their transport needs. We know that some people find it daunting to make the initial shift to public transport, but by offering these online tools we are showing them just how easy it is to travel by bus, tram and train in South Yorkshire this party season.”
