First publishedon www.ITSInternational.com
The first tram on South Yorkshire Train Tram project (SYTTP) has been named Theo after the mascot of a local children’s charity. The first passenger service is scheduled to be completed next year and will run from Sheffield to Rotherham with the pilot project running for two years to measure customer satisfaction, passenger numbers and costs.
Until the new tram train route from Sheffield to Rotherham is operational in 2018, South Yorkshire’s CityLink vehicles will be used in the regular Suptertam timetable from October to support the existing tram service along the network.
