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.
