- BUSES & TRAMS
Sheffield has a comprehensive network of buses along with three tram lines meaning all the beer week venues are quite easy to get to. Most services run regularly up until around 11pm. A number of different operators provide services – First, Stagecoach, TM Travel, Sheffield Community Transport and Hulleys of Baslow. However one Citywide ticket works on all services, costing £5 (bus and tram) for an all day pass or £17.80 for a weekly ticket. You can buy these from bus drivers and tram conductors (cash only), alternatively from the self service machines in the bus interchanges. Day tickets are also available from First and Stagecoach’s phone app.

Hackney Carriage ‘black cabs’ can be hailed in the street and are plentiful, especially in the city centre. Private hire cars are slightly cheaper but must be booked, either by phone or on a smartphone app. The principle private hire taxi companies in Sheffield are City Taxis, Network Taxis and Uber.
Sheffield has a limited rail network; there are three lines operated by Northern Rail, providing a fast and reliable service. Trains run from Sheffield Station to Meadowhall and Chapeltown, Darnall and Woodhouse, Dore & Totley. For times and fares see http://www.nationalrail.co.uk.
