Changes to bus services from 28th April

We have been made aware of the following changes to buses affected Wickersley ward, which are expected to be introduced from the weekend of the 28th April. Until then services are unaffected.

  • Contracted evening and Sunday journeys on service 10 (these are the ones not operated by First) will be renumbered X10 and run via Wickersley Road instead of Moorgate Road – meaning that they will not serve Rotherham Hospital in the evening or on Sundays.
  • Service 19/19a/19b will be revised to provide a 15 minute service between Rotherham, Rotherham Hospital and Thurcroft. None of these routes will then travel via Wickersley Road. Changes between Thurcroft and Dinnington to maintain access for all passengers.  Evening and Sunday contracted journeys will be reduced to hourly (from half hourly).

At the same time, bus users should be aware that Rotherham bus station will be closed for about a year from the end of April for extensive refurbishment, with most services being transferred to a temporary bus station on Forge Island. The temporary site is just round the corner from the bus station to try to minimise disruption. UPDATE: further information is now available by clicking here.

From the end of April buses serving our area will depart from the following locations in the temporary bus station:

  • No. 4 (to Ravenfield) from stand A12 on Forge Island
  • No. 10 (to Maltby) from stand CS2 on Corporation Street
  • No. 13 (to Bramley) from stand CS2
  • No. 19 and 19a (to Worksop) from stand A12 on Forge Island
  • X1 (to Maltby) from stand CS2 on Corporation Street
