Local bus services return to pre-covid timetables


Most bus services in the Ilkley area are now running normal timetables again, following the introduction of reduced services during the lockdown period. The capacity of each bus is however reduced to facilitate social distancing.

Keighley Bus Company service 62 is also running through to Menston, Otley and Leeds Bradford Airport every hour throughout the day on Monday to Saturday again, as well as half-hourly to Addingham and Keighley.

DalesBus services 874 and 875 will be running again every Sunday from this weekend, providing links to Bolton Abbey, Burnsall, Grassington, Kettlewell, Aysgarth and Hawes. DalesBus 875 will be operated by a double decker bus to provide extra space.
