271/272: Sheffield - Castleton


The 271 and 272 are the main route from Sheffield into the Peak District. They differ only in their route within Sheffield itself: the 271 serving the Royal Hallamshire Hospital Mon-Sat daytimes; and the 272 running direct via Ecclesall Road early mornings, evenings and on Sundays. Buses run hourly for most of the day.

The majority of journeys are operated by First, but some are operated by Hulleys and one return trip very early each weekday is operated by TM Travel.


See the full timetable, which also tells you which operator runs each journey, on the following websites:


The timetables on the operators' own websites only include the journeys operated by that particular operator, so use one of the timetable links above for the full picture.

The cheapest day ticket that is valid throughout the route is the FirstDay Peak Explorer at £5.50 for an adult. It's only valid on journeys operated by First, but is also valid on all First buses throughout South Yorkshire.

The Derbyshire Wayfarer ticket at £12.40 is valid along the entire route on all journeys on the 271/272 regardless of operator. It can also be used on almost all buses and trains throughout Derbyshire and on selected routes into neighbouring counties. Buy it in advance or from the bus driver.
