Bus Service Introduced After Customer Feedback

Thursday February 27 2014

A NEW bus service has been introduced thanks to passenger feedback.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) has been listening to feedback as part of its 'You Said, We Did' initiative.

The new 216 bus service between Bolton-upon-Dearne and Grimethorpe ensures ASOS employees have a bus for all shifts.

An SYPTE spokesman said: "This is an ongoing commitment to put customers first by trying to make getting around by public transport easy, convenient and best suited to what people want and need."

At one time of day you could set your watch with travel time of the bus when it was TRACKY. The service now is quite poor. I do not use buses anymore.

This service doesn't cover all shifts at the ASOS site. There are 6-2, 2-10 and 10-6 shifts operating at this site which people still struggle to get in for. Especially the early morning shift.

They could do with another 67 that runs from wombwell to hoyland instead of one a hour witch doesn'talways turn up i catch the 7.45 from wombwell for work at 830 if this doesn't turn up the next one is 9.20 which is too late and it doesn't help the kids that use the early bus for school

What about the wonderful express intercity bus links we used to have like the X32 and X33...what happened to them,,.,>?

They should have a bus just to themselves. Most of them act like kids. They take a seat each, use foul language, constantly shout and treat other passengers and bus drivers like scum. They are like animals and give respectable people who work there a bad name

You said we did initiative .. what about letters and emails to local councillors regarding bus services to manvers from all surrounding villages ? It's ridiculous that industrial estates get built without a second thought how the people that don't drive are going to get to work !!! More thought should go into transport links for everyone .

I am going through this post and thinking of it’s theme and trying to understand what is this post about. At last I can have found something from this post which feels pretty good.

i spent hours into trying to put together a way to get to Grimethorpe ASOS warehouse (including 2 South Yorkshire travel centres - in Barnsley&Doncaster_), but never heard of a bus 216 x_x weird..

there should be a free bus running between barnsley & grimethorpe, at least, running regularly to catch & return from the shifts (becoz the only buses getting to grimethorpe from barnsley are only 1/an hour !?! not enough at all x_x )

Years ago, there were buses paid by the company to ferry employees to and from work at odd hours. Remember the pit paddy and the like. It would work for ASOS shifts maybe.
