The South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive is the Passenger Transport Executive for South Yorkshire in England. It is supervised by the South Yorkshire Integrated Transport Authority, which consists of representatives from the metropolitan boroughs of Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, and Barnsley.

It is responsible for various public transport services in the county, particularly the Sheffield Supertram and various subsidised bus services. Between 1974 and 1994 it ran virtually all bus services in the county. From 1986 until 1993, buses were operated by an arms length company, South Yorkshire Transport (SYT), until a staff buyout created the bus operating company Mainline Group. This company is now part of FirstGroup.

SYPTE is responsible for all the bus stops, shelters and bus interchanges in the county, along with Park & Ride sites. It provides comprehensive public transport information at stops, in the form of timetable leaflets, information on the web and a telephone enquiry service called Traveline. SYPTE has a network of Information Centres providing information and ticketing. SYPTE administers the concessionary travel schemes for children and students, senior citizens and the mobility impaired and the countywide multi-modal ticket Travelmaster.

Travel South Yorkshire

The South Yorkshire public transport network, of which SYPTE is a key deliverer of passenger services, was re-branded as Travel South Yorkshire in 2006. Changes include the introduction of the YourNextBus scheme on all stops as well as LED departure boards on the towns most often run routes at certain stops.

Timetable information

Travel South Yorkshire provides timetable information for all bus and train services within South Yorkshire. Some leaflets are available from Interchanges.

Travel information centres

Travel South Yorkshire's interchanges at Sheffield Bus Station, Arundel Gate in Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley, Doncaster, Hillsborough and Dinnington provide information and advice about public transport in South Yorkshire. From these interchanges, information can be obtained and a range of multi-modal (TravelMaster) tickets can be bought from self-serve vending machines. Other travel passes which were previously available at 'Information Centre' desks at these interchanges are now only available from the Travel South Yorkshire website or over the phone from Traveline.

Multi-modal ticketing

Travel South Yorkshire sells a range of multi-modal tickets on behalf of the public transport operators of South Yorkshire. These are generally in the form of smart card tickets and are commercial products which do not receive a subsidy.
