From next month several of Doncaster's bus services will be altered in what company bosses say is an attempt to 'make improvements and assist with punctuality'.

The changes will come into effect on Sunday, September 2.

A spokesman for First Buses said on their website: "We are making some changes in Doncaster to create new links in the area and to make improvements to punctuality.

"A key change to services in the area will be changes to the 57, 58 and X4 to provide new links and improved services to Manor Farm, Warning Tongue Lane, and Doncaster Sheffield Airport.

"Doncaster Sheffield Airport will now benefit from four buses per hour provided by service 57a and 57c and will be better connected to surrounding residential areas. Daytime services to Cantley will now benefit from a co-ordinated 10 minute frequency provided by some of the 57 and 58 journeys."
