Basic getting around

Sheffield used to be well known for its cheap bus prices...2p a ticket not so long ago, but all that has changed. Now the public transport is quite expensive especially if there is more than one person. If it is a short journey for example from the edge of the city then into the center on a night out then the best way to travell is by taxi...for more than one person it will work out roughly the same price as taking the bus but with the added benifit of comfort and door to door service.

There are two types of taxis in Sheffield, black cabs and private cabs you can flag down in the street with out any problem....private hire you are supposed to book an appointment first. There are plenty of both taxis so catching either is not a problem.

There is a train station ( Midland Station ) in the middle of the city center that has regular services to London, Manchester Airport and near by cities and towns.

Beware if you decide to cycle here...there are cycle lanes but most get abused by cars, and like most cities there are alot of cars here.

Walking is great but be prepared for hills.

On a whole all the services are quite good and do have a large range. You will be able to go where you want at nearly the exact time you want. I believe the bus service is doing a route that goes into the Peak District that allows you to take bicycles on board the bus, this must be an excellent service and is well worth taking advantage of.

There is a small airport here but I think it is just about all closed up... not many destinations to go to and not many arrivals.
