Changes to buses in Harrogate from Sunday 28 April


We're making some changes to our buses in and around Harrogate from Sunday 28 April. There are some exciting improvements to tell you about on Harrogate Electrics buses to Bilton, with NEW evening buses on the 2B around The Knox, and there's improvements to help with our timekeeping on the 36, too.

We'll also be introducing a new route, the 8, running between Harrogate, Hookstone Chase, Knaresborough and Wetherby.

Here's a summary of the changes.

2A/2B Harrogate – Bilton

New evening buses every hour on the 2B for The Knox & New Park

There'll be some small changes in the afternoon to make things more reliable, as well as new Mon-Sat evening buses every hour on the 2B. Evening buses on the 2A will also now run every hour. The last bus on the 2B will be at 10:40pm and on 2A at 11:10pm, meaning you can stay out later and still catch the bus home. Sunday buses are unchanged.

These journeys will take a slightly different route, and won't be running through Killinghall.

Buses on Sunday will also leave Harrogate 5 mins later to allow better connections from the 36.

We've listened to your feedback, and we're making some more changes to help with reliability on the 36, with MORE buses between Harrogate and Leeds during the busy morning and afternoon rush hours. Two journeys will serve a revised route in Leeds city centre.
