City to launch free bus service
A free city centre bus service is being launched in Sheffield on Monday in an attempt to relieve congestion.

The FreeBee bus will link the city's train and bus station with Sheffield Hallam University and the main shopping districts.

The service will run every few minutes, from 0700 to 1900 GMT on weekdays and from 0800 to 1900 GMT on Saturdays.

South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive said it would reduce the need for people to bring cars into the city.
