The bus or tram gate on Langsett Road is just beyond Ripley Street and is usually limited to public transport and taxis.
A permit to drive through the bus or tram gate at Langsett Road (outbound only) is available for residents of the following roads:
- Rudyard Road
- Rudyard Mews
- Treswell Crescent
- Rider Road
- Haggard Road
- Kipling Road
Each permit is valid for 12 months. Without a permit, residents can't use the bus or tram gate.
Who can't apply for the permit
We can't provide permits for visitors to properties, delivery vehicles, or short term hire or lease cars (unless registered at an address on one of the eligible roads).
Where you can't use the permit
The permit doesn't allow the holder to use other bus or tram gates in Hillsborough or elsewhere in Sheffield, this includes the inbound bus or tram gates on Holme Lane or Middlewood Road. If holders do use these gates (when signs say they shouldn't) we may consider withdrawing their permit completely.
Your permit will be invalid if:
- you are not a resident of one of the above roads
- you cause or allow the letter of exemption to be used for reward
- in our opinion the use of the exemption has been abused
If any of this takes palces we will invalidate your permit and ask you to return it to us within 48 hours of our request.
Proof of address
We will normally be able to check your Sheffield Council Tax or electoral records.
If we do not have these, provide electronic copies of 2 of the following:
- last utility bill
- tenancy agreement
- Council Tax statement
- proof of vehicle ownership
- registration document (V5)
- vehicle insurance certificate
- company car: also include a letter on company headed paper
