Announcement from South Yorkshire Transport

Dear Colleague

Changes to First bus services in Doncaster from Monday 26 July 2021

I am writing to inform you that due to driver shortages at their Doncaster depot, associated with an increase in the number of staff self-isolating and employees leaving the industry, there will be changes to some First South Yorkshire bus services in Doncaster from Monday 26 July 2021.

Following discussions between SYPTE and First to ensure that reliable services can be maintained for customers, it has been agreed that from Monday 26 July First services in Doncaster will operate an enhanced Saturday service on Mondays to Fridays; on some services there will also be additional early morning journeys provided as shown:
