Immediate changes to Tates Travel bus services


09 February 2016


BARNSLEY bus firm Tates Travel has ceased running services with immediate effect.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive, which subsidises a number of buses previously run by Tates Travel, is taking urgent action together with Barnsley Metropolitan Borough Council and local bus operators to put alternative services in place.

Temporary arrangements have already been made to ensure many of the vital local buses can continue to run. Work is also underway to resume services on the remaining affected routes.

Pre-purchased Tates Travel weekly tickets are being accepted on these services.

Regular service updates and alternative travel information for Tates Travel passengers is available at, by calling Traveline on 01709 51 51 51 and on Twitter @TSYalerts.
