For information on how to see the Torch Relay using public transport, and for details of disruptions to local services visit travelsouthyorkshire.com/torch
Local bus services along the route may use localised diversions when the torch passes in order to minimise delay and inconvenience the majority of passengers.
Delays to services will occur but timetables will be maintained as best as possible and where appropriate temporary timetables will be advertised.
Full diversion information/temporary timetables will be available online and localised diversion/temporary timetable information will be posted on the affected bus stops prior to the event.
Minimise delay and inconvenience
To get around these disruptions try travelling at alternative times (set off in good time) or use alternative routes. Also if availing using trams and trains could minimise delay and inconvenience as the torch will only directly have an effect on road users.
