Buses To Stannington From Either Town Centre Or Hillsborough

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me out with info on bus routes to Stannington? A friend will be moving to that area soon - to a place near Deer Park Rd. 

Can I get a bus to Stannington from either the town centre or from Hillsborough? If so, what is the bus route number and where can I get it from?

Thanks

Ask "Andy C" he knows everything about public transport.

First bus app can also be helpful in finding buses and routes.

The main routes to Stannington are the 81/82, operated by First, from Ecclesall Road, the City Centre and Hillsborough. They follow the same routes most of the way but then serve different parts of Stannington. In the City Centre they stop around the Moor, on Arundel Gate (Crucible theatre)  and Angel Street/Snig Hill (below Castle Square tram stop).

 

There is also the Powell's bus 61/62. This is the local rural bus that runs a loop once an hour from Hillsborough Interchange up to Bradfield.

 

The Travel South Yorkshire website has downloadable network maps and timetables:

The independent bus times website is quite useful if you want to click on a specific stop to see what buses go from there and you can also use it to track buses live on a map: https://bustimes.org/localities/stannington-sheffield

 

Travelmaster provide a range of tickets that offer unlimited travel on all buses, regardless of operator. For travel within Sheffield the CityWide pass they offer is a good one, offering all buses and trams - From Stannington as well as the direct First bus into town you can use it to get the Powells bus down to Hillsborough and jump on a tram, offering a bit of flexibility. https://www.sytravelmaster.com/

The Powells 61/62 while staffed by friendly people is a bit unreliable, two missing to my knowledge in last month.

Most operators have suffered with driver availability in recent months to be fair, basically due to NHS Test & Trace pinging them to stay home and self isolate at short notice.
