South Yorkshire is to receive almost £25m government money to improve its transport.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE) said the money would help connect people to jobs.

Among other things, the £24.6m will go towards new cycle and bus routes, travel information and making journey times more reliable, SYPTE said.

The investment is to take place over the next three years.

South Yorkshire is one of 12 places to win Local Sustainable Transport Funding, but was the only metropolitan area to receive its full allocation, SYPTE said.

SYPTE made the bid for the lower Don Valley (Sheffield to Rotherham area), Doncaster, Barnsley and the Dearne Valley.
