Bus operators are helping support the Sheffield Half Marathon. To accommodate the race, many bus services in Sheffield will be diverted from their regular route during the Sheffield Half Marathon on Sunday 6 April.
Road closures between 7.30am and 12.30pm will impact the majority of city centre bus services. Ecclesall Road, Attercliffe Road and Nether Edge services will be particularly affected. Amended stopping arrangements will be put in place.
Dedicated tram replacement bus services will also run between the city centre (Angel Street) and Hillsborough due to essential rail replacement work on the Supertram track.
Yellow route trams will operate between Meadowhall and the city centre, and Blue route trams will operate between Halfway and Infirmary Road via the city centre. The Purple route is not affected.
SYPTE Deputy Interim Director General, David Young, said: “Using public transport is a great way to get into Sheffield. It saves you worrying about road closures, and if you have tired legs after the run, let the bus and tram drivers chauffeur you home. If you are planning to come into Sheffield do make sure you know about the changes and allow a little longer for your journey.”
People that plan to travel on bus and tram services during the Sheffield Half Marathon are urged to plan their journey in advance using Travel South Yorkshire’s journey planner and public transport maps at travelsouthyorkshire.com
