The South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive (SYPTE), the

public authority which oversees public transport facilities in the

region, including the South Yorkshire Supertram in Sheffield, is

reviewing the lobbying account it holds with GPC Connect.



Westminster Strategy, the Waterfront Partnership, Shandwick Public

Affairs and GPC Connect (which will change its name to Connect Public

Affairs in the new year) have been invited to pitch. The work is likely

to involve lobbying the Government over its transport policy review and

pushing for more funding.



The South Yorkshire executive is one of six regional bodies which

co-ordinates public transport in England. It is run by local authority

councillors from the region.
