This service actually ran as a circular, Hyde Park one way and Racecourse the other taking 16 minutes to go round in a circle and come back to where it started. They became the 13 (Hyde Park) and 14 (Racecourse) when Doncaster Transport introduced route numbers and subsequently routes 173 & 174 under the PTE renumbering. In the last year of Doncaster Transport (1973) it cost 1p to go as far as College Way and 2p would take you all the way round and back to where you started.
