Rail Replacement

Rail replacement bus stop locations can be found on station information posters.

At Sheffield, rail replacement buses arrive and depart from Sheffield Interchange Bus Station, stands E5 or E6 – a five-minute walk from the rail station.


Please note rail replacement buses are unable to carry:

+ Heavy luggage

+ Non-folding bicycles, prams or scooters

+ Animals (other than registered assistance dogs).


Travelling to or from Edale? 

Edale will not be served by the main rail replacement bus service due to narrow roads. A separate minibus service runs between Edale and Hope stations, where connections with the main bus services can be made to Manchester or Sheffield.
