Amazing buses for the 1

01-08-2016

Have you spotted one of our amazing refreshed buses out and about on the 1 yet?

All of our buses on the 1 between Harrogate, Starbeck and Knaresborough have had an exciting makeover, with comfy new seats, 'next stop' announcements, superfast free 4G WiFi, and USB power points now available as standard.

They've had a facelift on the outside too, with bold, bright destination screens which tell you how long you've got until the bus is ready to leave the bus station. You can see them coming from miles around, with a sparkling paint job which features some familiar faces on the back - so keep your eyes peeled for somebody you might recognise on a bus near you!

We know that the quality of the air around our towns is important to everybody, so as well as all of the wonderful cosmetic stuff, we've had some important work done 'under the hood'. Our buses have been fitted with emission-busting 'Eminox' technology, which reduces the amount of NOx (that's the really nasty stuff in diesel exhaust) by a whopping 96%.

The 1 runs up to every 7 minutes in the daytime between Harrogate, Starbeck and Knaresborough. Don't forget, that unlike others, we don't sleep in on Sundays either - you'll find a bus every 15 minutes throughout the day, so pop out into town and have a read of the Sunday papers at your favourite coffee shop.

If you use the 1 through the week, take advantage of our incredible value weekly tickets - just £8.50 for a week's travel between Starbeck – Knaresborough, or £12 for a week between Harrogate – Knaresborough.
