It Gets Even Better

Not only will I be able to use my travel pass to travel on the train to Sheffield for free from June 8th, thus making it much easier for me to go walking in the Peak District, but I've just been checking the South Yorkshire Transport Forum and noticed that these details had been posted.

So, it seems that as from July 20th one existing service is going to be running far more frequently at weekends, and there's going to be a completely new service to Bamford Station as well.

This is very good news...I've written often enough on this blog about overcrowded buses in the Peak District.
