SIXTY jobs will be lost at South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive as they try to make budget savings.

Staffing levels at the authority, which oversees public transport in the region, are set to be cut from 360 to 300 - a 16 per cent reduction of the overall workforce.

David Brown, South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive Director General, said: “We are all aware that the country’s economic difficulties are continuing and all public sector organisations are subsequently facing budget cuts. SYPTE is no different, and it is with much regret that we need to make difficult decisions with regard to the deployment of the budget and associated resources.
