H1 bus service Northern General

Recommended Posts

Teaching hospital staff get free travel on this bus, but NHS staff have to pay, seems crazy to me as the NHS fund this service just spoke to community transport who run the service and they confirmed this

Actually STH fund this bus, out of their budget, therefore their staff travel free.

SCH don't contribute, so their staff pay to use this bus.

SCH hospital didn't want to be part of STH all those years ago.

If they contributed in some way to the running of this very useful service then their staff could travel free too.

I don't think SCH has ever been part of this scheme.  Why would they when their staff only work in one main site at the west of the city?

I believe this bus scheme came into existence in the 2000s as part of several ways to help with the staff parking problems. They were planning to build a massive multi-storey car park at the NGH but the locals objected to the building so it never got built. This bus service was to allow the central staff to park at the NGH multi-storey and take the bus to central. No doubt the size and frequency of the bus would have been different if the Car park had been built.

Well you could well say the same about Sheffield University staff, their staff now pay on this bus, a few years ago they travelled free.

Students still travel free though.
