About Us

Welcome to the SYTT's website. 

The South Yorkshire Transport Trust's members and friends have been very busy buying and restoring vehicles over the past 15 years,  all until relatively recently 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 Edinburgh and another from Belfast.  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 and since then the collection has grown, along with the volunteer base. Some great work is being done restoring the vintage/classic buses to operational condition, thanks to the great skills and commitment of the volunteers.  

The SYTT and the Eastwood premises are currently undergoing a reorganisation due to the increasing number of restored vehicle we have to display, so when you next visit us we think you will notice a difference.  

The SYTT also became a registered charity in May 2022, so at the same time as the reorganisation of the Riverside premises it is also undergoing a administrative restructure to accommodate the changes needed. 

 Come and see the collection at our next open day. 

Updates on vehicle restoration can be followed through facebook at 'The SYTT Activities & Archives'.

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