Every 10 mins to Leeds on the 36

5 months ago Mon 17th Jun 2019

The 36 links Ripon, Harrogate and Leeds up to every 10 mins with a top of the range fleet. We think the 36 buses are the finest in the country.

We've examined every detail about the 36. We've spent a lot of time talking to our customers and our team about what we can do to improve things. The result is a £4 million investment in 17 of the finest twin deck buses money can buy.

Free superfast 4G WiFi. USB power points at every single seat. Double glazing to give you a better view. Plush, leather coach seats upstairs with personal tables and quilted leather seats with a chill-out area downstairs. 

A glazed roof, as let's face it, it's better to stare at the stars and sky than at a ceiling. New next stop audio and visual info screens, featuring the voice of everyones favourite Harry Gration. Contactless payments for easy ticket buying. And, Library 36 where you can bring, take and swap books for your journey.

But that's not all. The 36 now runs every 10 mins between Harrogate and Leeds, and every 20 mins on to Ripon. We've added new night buses until 3:15am from Leeds every Saturday night. New buses will pick you up from Bilton, Jennyfield and Starbeck at busy times. Plus if you need onward travel in Leeds, we've teamed up with First to offer a £1 add-on to single, return and day tickets on 36 to use their buses in the city.

Service with a smile is often a cliche. We think it's important. That's why we have hand-picking a dedicated 36 team that you can get to know, and they can get to know you. Even though we believe in better buses and better timetables, at the end of the day, it's all about the people.

Black, red and green. Whilst the new buses are packed with the latest features, modern construction means they are more robust yet lighter. They are the most fuel efficient diesel buses that exist in the world. Better for the planet, better for you. 

We know you already have some of the best buses around - you've told us so, with some of the best satisfaction scores that exist anywhere in local buses in the UK, but with the new 36 we reckon you'll have never had it so good. We don't do complacent, we want to do sheer excellence.
