BARNSLEY Interchange will lose its transport information centre and have reduced levels of cleaning after budget cuts were announced.

Paper timetables will also be scrapped and bus shelters will only be cleaned every three months as part of a plan to save £7.6 million across South Yorkshire.

Sir Steve Houghton, chair of Sheffield City Region, said: ”We're pleased to be able to avoid reductions to local bus services and concessionary travel.

"However, it's with regret that the 10 per cent reduction to South Yorkshire’s public transport budget means there must be changes to other frontline services."

SYPTE will replace front line information and support services with kiosks, web and other alternatives, some of which are more accessible to customers.
