TM Travel - bus route 30 relaunch

Recommended Posts

Did anyone else see a TM new route branded 30 bus broke down just outside C.Peaks bus station about 5pm today? Think it was fleet no. 834? I passed it too quick for precise details.

It costs more on the 30 and I have no idea if I can use it with other providers' tickets.

It isn't part of the Optio joint service arrangement on route 42/44/120/123 if that's what you mean...

 

TM Travel do their own tickets - £3.60 for a Sheffield all day ticket or £11.50 for a Sheffield weekly ticket - as well as accepting Citywide tickets that are valid for all buses and trams (£4.30 day/£17 week).

Of course a problem with commuting on route 30 can be traffic on the parkway. I'd rather use the tram.

you`ll be one of those "OAP`s" one day!!!!

 

As the retirement age rises, an increasing amount of people will die before reaching retirement.

 

The majority of these people dying before retirement age will be those born into the poorest households.

 

The average life expectancy of a homeless person is just 49 for example.

 

Those born in the poorest areas of Sheffield die on average some 20 or so years before those born in the wealthiest areas.

Ah the good old PTE....

 

Whilst I would stick to the tram too, here is a link to TM Travel's timetables http://www.tmtravel.co.uk/bus-times/south-yorkshire/

Every bus that travels through Mosborough goes along Mosborough Moor and Birley Moor road into the bus station only. Places such as Gleadless and Handsworth are inaccessible if you live here. Route 55 is not every hour, it starts at 9 am and finishes at 4.30 with no bus at 3.pm There is no way of getting directly to peaks before or after then. Going out of Sheffield you can only get to Chesterfield or Mansfield. Hardly a decent choice of alternative shopping.

not completely inaccessible if not direct. Simply change onto other buses or trams at Halfway or Manor Top.

 

Halfway is very close to Mosborough and has the 120 bus running every 8 minutes and the blue route tram every 10 minutes. The 120 also crosses Station Road near Mosborough.

 

All the main Mosborough buses into Sheffield City Centre pass through Manor Top where as well as the 120 and tram you have buses 32,39,42,44,123.

Wow new buses That will make a change from the worn out Leyland Olympians from the early 90's they were running recently.
