    There isn't one.

    Get a Day Tripper ticket and get the bus down from Broomhill to the City Centre or Uni, and then get on the tram from the city.

    Alternatively, get the bus to the Train Station, and get the train from Sheffield to Meadowhall.

    The SYPTE Pass allows you to use the ticket as many times as you like on buses, trams and local trains services, at any time in the day.

    Until your 19th Birthday it £39.50 per month. After your 19th Birthday, it's £75 per month, but that's for unlimited travel on all South Yorkshire buses, local trains and trams.

    You buy them from the Ticket Information Centre such as the one in Sheffield Transport Interchange.

    Yeah, theres a couple: a termly First buses pass that gives you unlimted journeys on their buses in the Sheffield region and then you just pay a £1 top up each single journey on trams and other bus operators.

    That'll be hidden somewhere on FirstGroup.com in the Buses > Sheffield section.

    On the flip side theres the termly Stagecoach Sheffield UniRider ticket which gives unlimited travel on Trams and Stagecoach (ex-Terrier) buses, and then you just pay a top up on FirstGroup buses. That's available on http://www.stagecoachbus.com/ted.html, follow the purchase now, and select Sheffield > Uni of Sheffield > UniRider Term 1.
    They do it term by term so at the moment you can only have the UniRider so far for Sep-December, and it costs £85...

    Or, there's the annual SYPTE pass for £665 which gives you unlimited travel on buses, trams and local trains in the entire Sheffield zone.

    For a little walk from the bus when you get there you could get the 52 or 60. The red star is your destination, the blue blob is Opal House.

    Does anybody know how much would be to get the train from Sheffield to Manchester and get back? There are very interesting gigs taking place in Manchester, so it would be great to go there and be back at my hall the same day!

    about £12 for a single (so under £24 for a return but it all depends when you travel), takes about and hour and a half. Trains run all throguh the night because there's a service that goes to manc airport.

    Hi, I am going to be studying at Sheffield University in sept '07 and will be travelling from a local village (Thurcroft). I was wondering if anyone on this forum knows of any routes (bus/tram etc) to the university from there, other than the 23 (which takes 1.5 hrs) or the 19 + X78 (which takes about 1 hr), preferably quicker ones than these two.

    Also can anyone recommend a monthly/yearly pass that I should get as I am not too sure which one to get. Is there a pass which allows for travel on different services (First/Stagecoach etc)?

    Thanks in advance.

    Whatever bus you can get, change at Rotherham Interchange and get the train to Sheffield.

    From there you can either take the #60 (Destination Fulwood) from outside the train station forecourt to West Street area for the Management and Engineering buildings, or behind the Students Union for the rest of the University; or take the tram (Destination Malin Bridge), to University of Sheffield stop.

    As for passes; that allow this sort of multi-operator, multi-modal journies... you'll be looking for a pass from the South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive.

    You'll be crossing from the Rotherham 'Zone' to the Sheffield 'Zone' in terms of tickets, so you'll need something that covers all South Yorkshire.

    There's a "Day Tripper" (if you start your journey before 9.30AM) which costs £5.50 for all modes; or £4.50 if after 9.30AM.

    Now, for longer term stuff, and Dependant on when your 19th Birthday is....

    Up until your 19th Birthday you're entitled to a Monthly Travel Master costing £39.50. This allows unlimited travel on Trains, Trams and Buses in South Yorkshire at any time; so even your local buses when you're back home at the weekends or at night.

    After your 19th Birthday that doubles to £75 per month; so £18.75 per week.


    There are Week passes available at £20 a week, so if you know it's the holidays and you're not going to be at Uni for 3 out of 4 weeks of a month.


    Check out TravelSouthYorkshire.co.uk for more details.

    You'd be able to buy the Day Tickets from your local bus driver at the start of the day; the longer term stuff you'd have to buy from the Interchange building at Rotherham or Sheffield.

    Thanks for all of the info, it has helped me out lots.

    Unfortunately I am 19 before I start uni so I will probably have to get the £75 pass. I just need to check, does this pass cover all bus services, i.e. first, stagecoach, etc. It's just that I can't find a route that sticks to one service, i'm going to have to mix and match.

    In our intro meeting last week a lecturer said something about students can now get any First bus for 50p with their UCard, but having looked on the First website it seems this only applies to the new buses that go from the uni to the Halls areas. I live in a non-student area where these buses don't go, does anyone know anything about whether you can pay just 50p on normal buses too?
