The 36 is already the finest way to travel between Leeds, Harrogate and Ripon, home to the best buses on the roads today. 

Superfast free 4G WiFi and USB power. Spacious, luxury leather seats. Contactless payments. Library 36 on board. And plenty more besides.  

The 36 is about to get even better. 


From 29 October, there'll be a bus every 10 minutes between Harrogate and Leeds. You'll be able to turn up and go with 6 buses an hour right through the daytime. 

This will mean an overall timetable change to further aid timekeeping. There will be more buses to and from Ripon at morning and evening rush hour, where we see some overcrowding, with double the amount of buses to Ripon during the afternoon rush hour.

During the quieter time in the middle of the day, buses between Ripon and Harrogate will run every 20 mins. We will also add more buses to Ripon, with an extra departure from Harrogate on Saturday nights at 12.05am. There'll be more buses on Sundays, too - every 20 mins (instead of every half hour) with all buses running through to Leeds.

Other timetable changes include reductions to Bilton and Jennyfield on those trips which haven't proved popular during the afternoons - these buses will run to Starbeck or Ripon instead. The morning trips from Bilton and Jennyfield will stay the same as they are at the moment.

We are investing £0.75 million in additional, new buses for the 36, which will come with all of the features you know and love - supported with a few extra improvements to the ride quality to make your experience even better.
