Wakefield, Castleford and Pontefract Service changes, July 2017

Start Date: 22/07/2017

Location: Wakefield area

From the weekend of 22nd July 2017.

We are making a number of changes to our services in the Wakefield, Castleford and Pontefract areas from the weekend of 22nd July.

110 – Hall Green to Leeds – from Monday 24th July

Following high numbers of customer requests, we will be reinstating stops at Lofthouse Jumbles Lane (towards Leeds) and Lofthouse Carlton Lane (towards Wakefield, Kettlethorpe and Hall Green).

148 – Knottingley to Wakefield – from Monday 24th July

The weekday arrivals in Wakefield at 08:40 and 09:00 will be retimed to better reflect traffic conditions along the route at this time.

163/166 – Castleford to Leeds – from Monday 24th July

A revised timetable will be introduced on all days to help improve service reliability.

212/212A – Wakefield to Dewsbury – from Saturday 22nd July

A revised Sunday daytime timetable will be in operation. Departure times from Dewsbury will change slightly. Buses will leave Dewsbury at 07:50, 08:55 and then hourly until 18:55. The times of Sunday evening journeys will not change.

Weekday and Saturday journeys operating around Arncliffe Road and Hayburn Road will be renumbered 212A to make these departures easier to identify for residents in those areas.

217 – Overton to Leeds – from Monday 24th July

The 17:15 weekday journey from Leeds will operate in an anticlockwise loop around Overton and terminate at Middlestown Junior School. From New Road, buses will turn left into Green Lane, left in to Old Road, before terminating at the junior school on Cross Road.

231/232 – Wakefield to Huddersfield – from Sunday 23rd July

The Sunday service will pass to Yorkshire Tiger from this date. This will mean that existing Yorkshire Tiger customers using buses on weekdays and Saturdays can now make use of their travel passes on Sundays too! Buses will operate to a slightly revised timetable to help improve service reliability. 

We would like to thank our existing customers for using our service. More details on Yorkshire Tiger can be found by clicking here.

X60 – Castleford to Leeds – from Monday 24th July

A revised timetable will be introduced to avoid afternoon buses waiting for extended periods of time at Garforth on days with lighter traffic conditions.
