Changes to our buses in Harrogate from Sunday 23 July


From Sunday 23 July, we're making changes to some of our buses in and around Harrogate.

24 Harrogate - Pateley Bridge

There are some changes to the timetable on the 24 during weekday mornings to improve reliability for you. Very few people used the 24 during the evenings on Mondays through to Saturdays, so the trips leaving at 1830 from Harrogate and 1930 from Pateley Bridge will no longer run. 

On Sundays, the 24 will now run along Clint Bank, as it does on Mondays through to Saturdays at the moment. 

Outside of summer time, the 24 will no longer run on Sundays. Going forwards, the 24 will run from the Sunday before the late May bank holiday, to the Sunday after the late summer bank holiday, inclusive.

A new timetable for the 24 will be avalable to download here soon. 

62 Keighley - Otley - Harrogate

Last year, the 62 was extended to run all the way to Harrogate, from Keighley, Ilkley and Otley. 

Unfortunately, since then, there haven't been enough people using the 62 between Otley and Harrogate to sustain this part of the route any longer.

So, from 23 July, the 62 will no longer run through to Harrogate, and will revert back to running only between Keighley, Ilkley and Otley. 

770 & 771 Harrogate - Wetherby - Leeds

It's time for an upgrade on the 770 & 771.

Newer, better buses are coming to the 770 & 771 from 23 July, equipped with free WiFi and USB power at every seat as standard. These buses are smarter than anything you've ever seen before on these routes - with plush designer interiors, comfy seats, and a 'next stop' info system on board. 

We're also bringing you new route numbers to make things even simpler - look out for the 70 & 71 from 23 July.
