Harrogate to the Yorkshire Dales will be improved from 16 April 2022


Bus links from Harrogate to the Yorkshire Dales will be improved from this weekend, with the start of a new service on Saturdays from 16 April 2022.

DalesBus 74 will run every Saturday from Knaresborough and Harrogate to Ilkley, Bolton Abbey and Grassington. The Reliance bus leaves from Knaresborough Bus Station (stand C) at 0910 and Harrogate Bus Station (stand 2) at 0925. It returns from Grassington at 1700 and Bolton Abbey at 1725.

There are also minor changes to DalesBus 59, running between Harrogate and Skipton on Saturdays, from this weekend. All journeys will return from Skipton five minutes later, and the bus will no longer call at Millstones.

Later in the year, from 3 July, Eastern DalesBus 825 will run on Sundays and Bank Holidays from Harrogate to Brimham Rocks, Fountains Abbey, Masham, Leyburn and Richmond.

These services are managed by Dales and Bowland Community Interest Company, which aims to improve sustainable access to the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There’s no need to book in advance to enjoy a day out on these buses – tickets are available from the driver.

Dales Rover day tickets are £10 for adults and £18 for any group of up to two adults and three children. Concessionary bus passes for the elderly and disabled are valid for free travel on DalesBus 59 and DalesBus 74.

Full details of these services are available online at www.dalesbus.org and in a timetable leaflet available from Harrogate Bus Station.
