    Like with the SU article, I think the Sheffield transport article on TSR Wiki might need some updating - does anyone know about travel in Sheffield to have a go at it?

    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?

    I think you can get any Stagecoach bus for 50p with your UCard

    Backing up what pineapplesquish said, you can also get on for 50p (can't remember if this is with First Mainline and/or Stagecoach) with pretty much any university ID. My brother who's in 6th Form tried it with my student card and it worked!

    Might have a go at editing the transport pages a bit - the 60 is long dead! The number 40 replaces it now.

    Hey, folks, could you be so kind as to explain how to get to Sheffield from East of Middlands Airport? I know that there are coaches going straight from the airport to the city, but I don't know whether I shall by a ticket to Sheffield or Sheffield Meadowhall (these are the options on nationalexpress site). So, could anyone help me how to reach the university?

    If you're getting a coach from the NX site you want it to Sheffield, not Sheffield Meadowhall.


    The other way to do it is to go from East Mids Airport to Nottingham on the connecting bus and then catch the train to Sheffield.

    Hi again!
    Have you looked at the bus/tram websites? If you go here (for the tram) there are some links to maps showing you the different tram stops. If you click on the Sheffield suburbs map you can see roughly where you are in relation to the tram route.
    Also I don't know if you've seenthis page - if you put in Boston Street to Hillsborough college it seems to come up with some buses.

    Yeah it's hard to tell...probably be trial and error when we get there! Bus is cheaper I think but I haven't found a definite route yet, there must be one. I have £30 a week if I don't manage to get a job so it's quite a big chunk at £3 a day. Ah well - may end up cycling after all! When do you start your course?

    I guess for the first few weeks I will just try the tram then I can ask around about the bus service if it's cheaper. I'm in the exact same position I will have £30 a week to live on too, everyone else seems to have loads more to live on. First thing I am gonna do after finding out my timetable is to get a job. xD
    I start on the 17th, thats my induction day.
    What day do you start?

    Yeah job is definitely a priority! I'm not sure when I actually start at the college, I move up to Sheffield on the 18th then it's Fresher's Week so perhaps the week after that. Means I can pick your brain about how to get there, as you are going first

    There are buses. I've never caught one between Endcliffe and campus (they're so close) but the Stagecoach ones are 50p single, and the First buses are £1 return. To Mappin it's about 30 minutes, Alfred Denny is 20 minutes at a reasonable pace walking.

    Practically everyone walks.
    If not, it's the 50p bus.

    The University tram stop / Netherthorpe Road (just after) on either the Yellow or blue routes. Its on the opposite side of the ring road to the main university campus.
