First Bus say they are starting to see a ‘positive return’ of people using their bus services across South Yorkshire for the first time since the pandemic and are proposing changes to services locally.
“We are looking to introduce some improvements to some services, journeys, and frequencies, but before we do that, we want to hear your views on the proposals”, said a spokesperson for the company.
“We have listened to lots of people over the past few months who have given us their views on what they would like to see with their bus service, and we have added some of those requests into the proposal”, they added.
First have set a deadline of Thursday 15th February for people to send in their views ahead of the service change date of 7 April. An online form is available HERE.
A summary of proposals listed by First Bus for services locally are:
- Service 84, Doncaster – Thorne, to be re-numbered 384 and 384A.
During the day journeys will be extended from Barnby Dun to Stainforth and Hatfield/Westfield Green. A new timetable will be introduced with an increased frequency of every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday during the day.
Service 384A will operate in the evenings and on Sundays. A revised timetable will be introduced to co-ordinate with service 387.
- Service 84A, Barnby Dun – Moorlands Prison, will will be re-numbered 385.
- Service 87, Doncaster – Thorne – Moorends, will be re-numbered 387 & 387A.
A new timetable will be introduced with buses running every 30 minutes Monday to Saturday during the day on service 387.
