How to...Travel in Sheffield
If you are new to Sheffield, or even new to using public transport, it can feel a bit daunting trying to get from A to B. However, Sheffield has a good transport system and many options to help you get about. We have two different bus companies covering the major routes (First Buses and Stagecoach) and we have the Supertram (which covers specific areas). Uber also covers Sheffield - along with other local taxi companies - and you may even want to cycle to campus!
The best way to find out how to get somewhere is through a journey planner. You can get journey planning advice on how to get around on Sheffield’s public transport from Travel South Yorkshire via https://journeyplanner.travelsouthyorkshire.com/.
As a student in Sheffield, you can get discount travel tickets; so if you do need to get public transport, you could save money. You can find more information about this from Travel South Yorkshire via https://travelsouthyorkshire.com/en-gb/ticketsandpasses/student-tickets.
The Students’ Union also provides some advice and assistance regarding travelling safely at night; find out more about this via https://su.sheffield.ac.uk/advice-and-support/health-wellbeing (‘Safe Taxi Scheme’ and ‘Safety Minibus’).
Finally, cycling is a good way to help you keep fit and can be quicker than travelling by public transport in congested conditions. You can find out more information about cycling on campus, including how to buy a bike, where to park, and maintaining your bicycle, via https://www.sheffield.ac.uk/efm/cycling.
Remember, if you have any questions, you can always arrange to speak to your Residence Life Mentor or attend the Residence Life Mentor Drop-in.
You can also arrange to speak to a Student Support and Wellbeing Officer at Residence Life via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
