New scenic bus link from Harrogate to Skipton every Saturday to begin in the summer

3 weeks ago Fri 13th Mar 2020

Later in the year we’ll be running a new route in partnership with Dalesbus between Harrogate and Skipton.

Running every Saturday, the 59 will be a fantastic way to take a day out, whether you’re heading all the way to Skipton or somewhere in between. The start date for the new route will be announced closer to the summer. 

There are plenty of things to do along the route, and convenient stops for circular walks in some beautiful surroundings – with nearby pubs for liquid refreshment too! Even the journey itself is special – we’ll be using a double deck buses and the scenic views along the A59 are Yorkshire at its best.

We’ll be stopping at The Millstones, Blubberhouses for Fewston Reservoir, The Devonshire Arms for Bolton Abbey, Bolton Abbey Station for the Embsay & Bolton Abbey Railway, and Skipton Bus Station for all the wonderful things this nice and busy market town has to offer.

There are three journeys each way leaving Harrogate at 9.45am, 12.45pm and 4.30pm and leaving Skipton at 10.45am, 1.45pm and 5.25pm.

You can ride all the way, and even connect in from our other buses around Harrogate, for just £10 with a Daytripper if you’re on your own or £19 if there’s up to five of you with a Daytripper Plus. We’ll accept all the usual Transdev passes and free concessionary cards too.

Thanks again to our friends at DalesBus for their support in introducing this new route. Find out more about DalesBus here.
