bustimes.org Is a great resource for timetables and live tracking of any bus in Britain. You can type in your destination, origin or bus operator and route and you will find timetables and calling points.

Yes but my point was about why stagecoach and First buses do not include all buses on a route . I could also use the PTE timetable which show all buses. The problem is wen I google bus 86 sheffield timetable most people would click on the first link

I find the SYCMA (ne SYPTE) website very poor. It was fairly useless last week, in covering the snow chaos, too.

I rarely use it since during some long planed work on the tram network with services suspended they could not be bothered to update the journey planner

Why would anyone click both unless they knew that they service was split between the two . Anyone looking at the stagecoach timetable for the 86 would simply assume there was no sunday service

Then why not use the timetables produced by TSY - they incorporate both operators services?

For the same reason Asda do not advertise Morrisons prices. There are a businesses.

 

Timetables that they produce are for their services.

They are NOT  competing I specifically chose the 86 route because Stagecoach run most of the services but late night and Sunday buses are run by First

Of course they’re competing. They are two private independent companies, how can they not be competing?

Well done ECCOnoob, I said exactly the same earlier using Tesco and Asda. I’m not sure that BigAl1 understands the meaning of the phrase “in competition with each other”.

Today, amidst the brisk air of Sheffield, I found myself navigating the familiar routine of catching the 48 bus to embark on my daily journey. With a sense of urgency, I hastened my pace down the lively streets, eager to reach the bus stop before the scheduled departure. However, despite my diligent efforts to beat the clock, fate seemed to conspire against me. As I approached the stop, my heart sank with dismay upon witnessing the all-too-familiar sight of the bus departing, its engine humming as it disappeared around the corner. A wave of frustration washed over me, accompanied by a twinge of regret for not having left a minute earlier. In that fleeting moment, time stood still as I grappled with the realization of missing the bus, knowing that it would inevitably set me back on my journey. Yet, amidst the disappointment, there was a silver lining to be found amidst the chaos of urban life. With a deep breath, I took solace in the bustling energy of Sheffield, the vibrant tapestry of humanity that surrounded me serving as a reminder that life's greatest adventures often unfold in the unexpected moments. Though I missed the 48 bus today, I found solace in the rhythm of the city, embracing the serendipitous detour that awaited me, knowing that every missed connection is merely a stepping stone on the journey of life.

There is no service in South Yorkshire numbered 48.

How times change Resident. I used to drive both the 48 and X48 services back in the day.

Aww dont pick on him/ her, he / She is clearly part of the new Sheffield promotion  regime and thinks that spinning stories and putting an emphasis on the " bustling / Vibrant City centre" will magically fix everything. Highlighting his / her posts the way a child would makes them even more important of noteworthy.
