The South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Executive is the Passenger Transport Executive for South Yorkshire in England. It is supervised by the "South Yorkshire Passenger Transport Authority", which consists of representatives from the metropolitan boroughs of Sheffield, Rotherham, Doncaster, and Barnsley.

It is responsible for various public transport services in the county, particularly the Sheffield Supertram and various subsidised bus services. Between 1974 and 1994 it ran virtually all bus services in the county. From 1986 until 1993, buses were operated by an arms length company, South Yorkshire Transport (SYT), until a staff buyout created the bus operating company Mainline Group. This company is now part of First Group.

SYPTE is responsible for all the bus stops, shelters and bus interchanges in the county, along with Park & Ride sites. It provides comprehensive public transport information at stops, in the form of timetable leaflets, information on the web and a telephone enquiry service called Traveline. SYPTE has a network of Information Centres providing information and ticketing. SYPTE administers the concessionary travel schemes for children and students, senior citizens and the mobility impaired and the countywide multi-modal ticket Travelmaster.

The South Yorkshire public transport network, of which SYPTE is a key deliverer of passenger services, was re-branded as "Travel South Yorkshire" in 2006. Changes include the introduction of the "YourNextBus" scheme on all stops as well as LED departure boards on some stops.
