Bradford and Kirklees Service Changes - 20th February 2016

Start Date: 01/01/0001


Location:

From Saturday 20th February 2016.

We are making a number of changes to our services in the Bradford and Kirklees areas on the weekend of 20th February. This includes a new weekday service between the White Rose Centre and Birstall Retail Park and extra buses serving Thornhill in the evening.

We have also made a number of improvements to our timetables to make our services more reliable.
