Changes to buses in Keighley from 15 May

changes

We have analysed current travelling patterns in Keighley as well as new trends since the impact of recent lockdowns. However, we are also keen that we build you a network that is fit for the future. 

That’s why we have put in considerable effort alongside our partners at Metro (the West Yorkshire Combined Authority) to develop a well-considered update to our routes and timetables. Metro continue to support many of the evening and Sunday buses in Keighley, plus K10-K19. 

As you’ll see below, a number of timetables will increase and in some cases, we will double the amount of buses on some routes. Let’s look at the changes route-by-route. 

You can find a map of our new and improved network here

K1 to & from Laycock

We will increase back to running every 30 minutes (currently hourly) Monday to Saturday. 

K2 and K3 to & from Braithwaite

Frequency will be increased from every 20 minutes to every 15 minutes Monday to Saturday. There are no changes to evening or Sunday journeys.

K4 to Bingley and Cullingworth

This new, simpler route will replace the K13, K17 and K19 and will run from Keighley to Cullingworth serving Parkwood Street, Thwaites, Riddlesden, East Morton, Bingley, Harden and Wilsden and will will run every hour (Monday to Saturday).

K5 to & from Thwaites Brow

We will increase back to running every 30 minutes (currently hourly with some extras) Monday to Saturday. Evening and Sunday buses will run hourly.

K6 to & from Fell Lane

Frequency will increase to every 30 minutes (currently hourly). Evening and Sunday buses will run hourly.

K7 to & from Oakworth

There are no changes to the K7 which will continue to run every 20 minutes Monday to Saturday and hourly evenings and Sundays.

K9 to & from Bracken Bank

Minor changes to the evening timetable. The K9 will continue to run every 15 minutes Monday to Saturday and hourly evenings and Sundays.

K10 to & from Spring Bank, Ingrow and Oakworth

The K10 will no longer run. The 67 will serve Spring Bank every hour as a replacement with K7 and K9 continuing to run to Oakworth and Ingrow.

K11 to & from Exley Mount

Times will change but we will continue to run every hour (Monday to Saturday)

K12 to & from Blackhill

Times will change but we will continue to run every hour (Monday to Saturday)

K13 to & from Riddlesden and K17/K19 Bingley and Cullingworth

These routes are replaced by the new, simpler K4 which will run from Keighley to Cullingworth serving Parkwood Street, Thwaites, Riddlesden, East Morton, Bingley, Harden and Wilsden. K4 will run every hour (Monday to Saturday). Buses from Cullingworth are timed to meet trains to or from Leeds at Bingley Railway Station where possible following customer requests. The section of the K19 along Dalton Lane is covered by Aireline 60 every 30 minutes. The section of the K17 on Royd Ings Avenue and Larkholme Lane will no longer be served, with alternative stops on Bradford Road. This section is used by an average of four customers per day and the change allows us to provide an enhanced service elsewhere.

K14 Keighley to Scar Top then Oxenhope

The K14 will be upgraded to a Monday to Sunday timetable, instead of just on Sundays. 

K15 Keighley to Haworth then Oxenhope

The K15 will be running to a different route. It will no longer reach Oxenhope, Leeming or Marsh Top, and will instead follow the route through Oakworth, Harewood Road and Bracken Bank.

K16 Keighley to Scar Top then Haworth

The K16 timetable will be reduced to Monday to Friday, with one journey in each direction.

62 Keighley to Ilkley

A minor change to the timetable, the journey from Ilkley at 2pm on a Sunday will instead leave at 1.56pm, with each stop leaving 4 minutes earlier than it does now. 

67 and Team Pennine 502 to & from Cullingworth, Denholme and Bradford or Halifax

The 67 will have a new timetable so between Keighley, Cullingworth and Denholme, the 67 and 502 will be more evenly spread, running every 20-40 minutes during the day. The 67 will run in and out of Keighley through Spring Bank, offering residents there a direct bus to Bradford, as well as new evening and Sunday buses too.
