    It's in part due to the fact that transport in Sheffield is integrated by the SYPTE so that everything links up nicely.

    So if you get the tram to Halfway, you can guarentee that when you arrive at Halfway, there will be a bus waiting for you - or visa verca when you get off the bus at Halfway.

    Halls (excl. Tapton) to Uni, yes very much so; service 60 (Purple Route - Destination Sheffield Transport Interchange) runs on the Fulwood Road from Ranmoor, running along there to the junction of Fulwood Road/Manchester Road in Broomhill, then turning right down the side of the HSBC at The York (Scream Bar), making it's way down past Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Drama Studios, Bar One back entrance (for the Concourse), and then straight over down to West Street for the Mappin Street depts.
    [Service 60 continues down West Street, turning right at City Hall tram stop, passing the Peace Gardens, and turning left at Moorhead. At the roundabout with Arundal Gate/Firestation, the service goes straight ahead making it's way down to Transport Interchange, for Ponds Forge, Railway Station, and National Express connections].

    On the way back from Uni this service will show it's destination at "Fulwood - Crimicar Lane".

    If you're at Tapton Hall follow instructions on the top post regarding service 52 [Red Route] towards Woodhouse (going to Uni), and to Crookes/Hillsborough (back to Tapton).

    The walk down from halls is fine taking 25 minutes at most. It's the walk up from Uni that will take some getting used to, but it will get you fit !

    I lived in tapton, got the bus twice in the whole year, but only because it was pooring with rain and I forgot a coat, no need to use the buses regularly really.

    Expression you're like some kind of transport guru.. do you memorise bus timetables for a laugh or something?

    when going into town for a night out, do many people get taxis? or do most people walk all the way back to halls? (btw do buses stop about 11.30pm? seems to be about the norm)
    wow I've just found this super old thread and post - it's before I came to uni! That's more than 1 1/2 years old that post. my question really did depend on where you were going from and too didnt it, the answer is very much yes if you're in town, but depends on weather and state of drunkeness if coming from union. lol, oh the memories.

    Just to point out that Stagecoach Group will be taking over the old Yorkshire Terrier bus routes as from Tuesday 2nd May 2006.

    This mainly affects the folks who caught Terrier route 52 upto Crookes/Hillsborough, but other Terrier routes are also ran across the city.


    What it does mean is that you can now buy a £2.70 Day Rider ticket on Stagecoach bus to include the Stagecoach Supertram, or visa versa, instead of the £3.95 SY Day Tripper.

    Further, the frequency of 52 services improve from 12 minutes when the route was ran by Terrier, to 10 minutes on Stagecoach.

    The last 52 service Monday-Friday, from the city centre to Crookes leaves University at around 1802.

    (NB: The First Overground Red Route 52, continues to operate through this transition with no impact on timetabling)

    Its around £16 I think, depending on the type of ticket you get and when you travel. With a young persons railcard it goes down to about £11.

    Travel Between Robin Hood Doncaster/Sheffield Airport - Sheffield

    Firstly, Robin Hood Airport is located in Finningley, near Doncaster - to get to the city you:

    1) Need to catch the Airport Arrow - distinctive logos, cant miss it - information from the link below:
    http://www.robinhoodairport.com/show...hp?file_id=126
    This will take you from the Airport ultimately to Doncaster Rail Station in around 25 minutes.

    2) Then, take the Train - ask for a SINGLE TICKET TO SHEFFIELD.
    They'll tell you it's GBP 3.20, and then ask which platform that departs from and at what time.
    You can use the South Yorkshire Daytripper to get from Robin Hood Airport to Sheffield, for all buses, trains and trams! The price at the moment is £4.50.

    You can buy a Uni rider Stagecoach Sheffield ticket for £85 for the first term - valid for the Supertram and Stagecoach Sheffield bus services, and this allows you to then pay a flat rate £1 "Travel adda" for bus journeys on other operators if you need to make a trip on a First bus for example.

    More information in the tickets and information section on http://www.supertram.com

    There are numerous park and rides, likely the best to use is either Meadowhall, which is at Junction 34 at Meadowhall Interchange train station, or you can use Nunnery Square which is on the Parkway Road before you get to Park Square Roundabout.

    From Junction 33 of the M1 follow the signs for Sheffield City Centre and keep going down the Parkway until you see the blue Park & Ride signs.

    University website has some P&R details.

    Hmmm think that might just be once you get into the First Sheffield Overground zone that you can utilise the Adda.

    Alternatively then, you can buy a SYPTE Travel Card monthly from the local Ticket Info Centre. Now, until your 19th B/Day thats £39.50 per month, then once you turn 19, then it's £75 per month, but that's for unlimited travel on all South Yorkshire buses, local trains (not Virgin services though), and trams.
