Winter Sunday Buses in Nidderdale

A winter Sunday service will continue to be provided on service 24 between Harrogate and Pateley Bridge in Nidderdale, following a recent fundraising campaign led by the Dales & Bowland CIC, Nidderdale Chamber of Trade and Nidderdale Plus.

The new Sunday timetable from 1st October 2017 will offer three return trips, with the first leaving Harrogate at 1015 to provide easier morning bus connections from services 36, 70 and 747 from West Yorkshire and the last bus returning from Pateley Bridge at 1625 - hopefully a more popular time, especially in winter.

Winter Sunday buses on service 24 will be operated by The Harrogate Bus Company, under contract to the Dales & Bowland Community Interest Company as part of the DalesBus network. Financial support has kindly been provided by Harrogate Water Brands, together with North Yorkshire County Council, Pateley Bridge Town Council, Nidderdale Chamber of Trade, and individual donors.

This means that Pateley Bridge, Summerbridge, Dacre, Darley, Birstwith and Hampsthwaite will continue to have buses to and from Harrogate on service 24 seven days a week all year round.


Wharfedale Bus Service Changes

The winter timetable on Sunday Cravenlink service 873/884 between Ilkley and Skipton and on Sunday DalesBus service 874 between Wakefield, Leeds, Ilkley, Grassington and Buckden will be introduced from 1 October 2017.

Pride of the Dales service 74 between Ilkley, Grassington and Hebden now runs on Summer Saturdays only - the last day of operation for Summer 2017 will be on 28 October.

North Yorkshire County Council service 74A between Ilkley, Grassington and Hebden will additionally operate on Fridays from 3 November 2017.


Service 11 (Horton-in-Ribblesdale - Settle - Tosside)
