Sheffield’s public transport system is made up of bus, train and tram services.

Sheffield’s Supertram has three tram routes covering the main transport corridors in the city. For many visitors to Sheffield, trams are the easiest way to get around although the coverage isn’t as extensive as the bus. One-way tram fares start at £1.80 in the city centre and longer journeys cost £2.50.
