Transport

Here at the Sheffield City Region we’re working to create a transport system that’s fit for the 21st century.

We will build a transport system that works for everyone, connecting people to the places they want to go within the region as well as nationally and internationally. Our transport system will be safe, reliable, clean, green and affordable.

Transport Strategy & Vision

The Mayor’s transport vision sets out how we are going to transform the region’s transport network. By 2040 we will be a City Region with comprehensive, effective and integrated transport connections, which support economic growth and improves quality of life for all.

The Sheffield City Region Transport Strategy sets out the transport priorities for our City Region up to 2040. It sets out on a strategic level how we intend to better connect our major urban and economic growth centres to enable the better flow of people, goods, businesses and ideas across the City Region, as well as promoting our rural and visitor economies.

Integrated Rail Plan

Poor rail connections limit the flow of people, ideas and businesses both within our region and between other parts of the north of England.

We now have a clear plan of action, one that draws together planned national, pan-regional projects such as HS2 and Northern Powerhouse Rail (NPR) and local investment in community rail stations and transport interchanges.

This Integrated Rail Plan is the first time we have brought these things together in one place.

South Yorkshire Bus Review

We want to hear what you think about the current bus system across South Yorkshire (Barnsley, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield) to see how and if we need to make improvements for the future. All information will be collated into a report for the Sheffield City Region Mayor, Dan Jarvis.

The survey will only take ten minutes to complete and all responses will be used to inform the review being led by Clive Betts MP.

The closing date for the survey is Friday 27 September 2019.

Active Travel Commissioner

Dame Sarah Storey, Britain’s most successful female Paralympian, has been named Mayor Dan Jarvis’s Active Travel Commissioner.

The World Champion cyclist and swimmer has won 14 Paralympic golds, first in swimming and now in cycling is set to take on a new challenge, leading the active travel agenda in the Sheffield City Region.

Transforming Cities Fund

Ambitious proposals for the future of the Sheffield City Region’s transport network have been submitted to the government’s Transforming Cities Fund.

The bid, for up to £220m in funding, focuses on three large areas which could most benefit from significant improvements across rail, public transport and active travel schemes.

The three areas the bid focuses on are the River Don “corridor” between Sheffield city centre and the Unity site north of Doncaster; the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation District (AMID) on the border of Sheffield and Rotherham, and the Dearne Valley Corridor.
