Making buses better this September

9 months ago Mon 16th Aug 2021

From 5th September, we are adding more journeys into the network as schools return, more people head back to workplaces and nightlife slowly returns to normal.

The 1 – our Saturday night buses are back! We will leave Harrogate at 1:10am and 2:10am – these connect with the 36 leaving Leeds at 12:15am and 1:15am

Harrogate Electrics 2A – on school days an extra bus will run at 8am from Bilton Community Centre to Harrogate. At Harrogate this bus becomes a 6 so pupils for Rossett school can stay on board and get off at Wellfield Court for their school

The 8 – there will be an extra trip at 4pm from Harrogate to Knaresborough

The 36 – our Saturday night buses are back! We will depart from Leeds at York Street outside the Bus Station at 12:15am, 1:15am, 2:15am and 3:15am following our usual route out of the city along Vicar Lane.

Buses for Schools – We have updated our guide to school buses for the new academic year here.

Our network serving Rossett School will be changing following discussions with North Yorkshire County Council. By popular request, you can now use The Harrogate Bus Company tickets on these buses at our normal prices. You can buy them on the Transdev Go app, meaning parents can do this for their child through our gifting function.

For Bilton (The Knox) - use the S2 at 0755 from Crab Lane Post office. This will serve all stops along the 2B route to Harrogate Bus Station and then onto Rossett School. This also replaces the current 2B trip at 0749.

For Bilton (Dene Park) - use the new 2A journey at 8am from Bilton Community Centre that extends from the bus station as a 6 to Wellfield Court for Rossett School. Catch the bus back from Wellfield Court stop at 1520.

For Jennyfield - use the new S3. This starts at Penny Pot Lane at 0758, picking up at all stops along the 3 route from Crowberry Drive to the Royal Hall.

For Skipton Road and Ripon Road - use the 620H, which will depart Little Wonder at 0817.

For Starbeck and Hookstone Chase - use the 8A which leaves Woodlands Hotel at 0754, Swarcliffe Road 0803, Forest Lane 080 and Hookstone Chase (Crossways) 0812.
