About Us

Welcome to the SYTT's new website. 

The South Yorkshire Transport Trust's members and friends have been very busy buying and restoring vehicles over the past 10 years, all behind closed doors in the historic Tinsley Tram Sheds. We have many buses and associated vehicles, mainly of local origin, all operating in and around South Yorkshire during the past 60 years.  However, we do have some from further afield, including one from Cyprus! We also have a few cars, tractors and a even a vintage JCB!

The SYTT finished relocating the entire collection of vehicles to new premises at Eastwood in Rotherham in 2017. Come and see the collection at our next open day.

Some of the vehicles in the collection are available for further restoration. These are SYPTE 1655, 1831, 1918 and SYT/Mainline 605. More information on these buses can be found in the 'Resident Vehicles' section.

If you are interested please contact the SYTT at syttevents@mail.com

Also, if you want to make a donation to help with the restoration of any of our vehicles, or to help with the general expenses of keeping the SYTT going, please click on the Donation button at the top of the page and follow the instructions.  Thank you!


Another two new arrivals at the SYTT premises in Rotherham recently. They are new to Sheffield Transport 293 which is an Alexander bodied Leyland Atlantean and former Yorkshire Traction 614 which is a Northern Counties bodied Volvo Olympian. These buses arrived in September 2018.
