BUS STATION bosses want passengers’ views on improvement works — a year after fire damaged the town’s main transport hub.
South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) will host drop-in sessions laying out plans for the bus station, which was closed for a week following a bus fire last May.
The bus station was left needing repairs to one platform, a lift, windows, toilets, offices, electrical cables, lighting and automatic doors.
Scaffolding remains around stand A6, supporting the damaged part of the structure.
SYPTE executive director Stephen Edwards thanked passengers for their patience during the repairs and asked them to join in consultation on further improvements, including new seating and customer information facilities.
The first of several drop-in sessions will be held at the interchange between 9am and noon next Monday, May 22.
They will continue throughout next week at the following times: 11am to 2pm on Tuesday, 11am to 5pm on Wednesday, 3pm to 6pm on Thursday and 11am to 4pm on Friday.
Mr Edwards added: “We are keen for as many customers as possible to have their say on our refurbishment plans, to make sure improvements best meet passenger needs.”
