PUBLIC transport users' thoughts has seen changes made to services in Barnsley.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) has been listening to customer feedback and making direct improvements to Barnsley’s public transport network as a result.

Their 'You Said, We Did' initiative actively encourages customer feedback on what public transport users feel is needed to make their journeys even better.

Examples of the latest changes that have been made through in Barnsley include smart kiosks being installed in the interchange to allow customers to quickly buy tickets.

A spokesperson said: "SYPTE has 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."

Get rid of Tate's buses they hardly ever turn up and when they do they're always breaking down

Stop all the emo's and the down and outs congregating outside, it's already looking in need of a hose down with them standing around littering and kicking their feet on the walls.

By repainting buses a different colour does not make them instantly more reliable. So getting rid of stagecoach will make no difference. New buses are due replacing the older ones. Stagecoach are here to stay. Tates on the other hand are not. They have cancelled the some routes from end of January

they have cancelled some routes due to them not been viable. would you run a bus on a route which carries only a handful of passengers, NO, and also more routes have been added,,

If Tates offered a service that was reliable and not every 2 hours, perhaps they would have more people using it on those obscure routes. Broomhill has one bus every 2 hours and half the time it doesn't turn up. Its meant to start at 7:44am from the Broomhill village but its very rare the drivers even bother coming into the village and instead turn around towards town at the top of the road. The buses smell, make high pitch whiny noises and some even have zero suspension making them almost unusable. It really is the pits of a bus company.

I don't have a problem with the bus service to Hoyland Common, quite the reverse in fact. It was kind of them to arrange for the evening 66 service to be changed so that it comes after the train from Leeds. Also very useful to have the 67 and 265 services on an evening.

It isn't just down and outs who drop litter, but normally law abiding citizens. Pity my grandmother isn't still around, she would have the town clean in no time at all.
