Did anyone see the bit about public transport in Sheffield? They got a family from Tinsley to test car -v- public transport to Meadowhall. They got the bus to town then tram to Meadowhall...why!!! you could walk to Meadowhall from Tinsley!
At least Meadowhall has good public transport links (tram, heavy rail, bus, park & ride). I lived in Manchester for a year and its Trafford Centre has no rail or tram link. The bus station is pathetic.
