The Shuttle 662
The Shuttle 662 is the high-frequency, high-quality link between Keighley, Bingley, Saltaire and Bradford, giving over 1,000 journey options every week.
At the end of 2015 it was given a £400,000 makeover. The service underwent a full rebrand in bright blue as The Shuttle and 16 vehicles were upgraded with new features including USB charging points, Wi-Fi and re-upholstered seats. The buses were refitted in house by our own engineering support unit and have all been named after famous space craft, including Apollo, Atlantis, Explorer, Galileo and Pioneer.
All vehicles are low-floor easy access for wheelchairs and pushchairs. Leather seating throughout means you can enjoy a comfortable ride, whether your journey is inter-urban or a shorter distance.
The Shuttle 662 runs direct along the Aire Valley between Keighley, Riddlesden, Bingley and Saltaire along the route of the old main road. The route then turns south-east to run between Saltaire, Frizinghall and Bradford, entering the City Centre along Manningham Lane and Westgate.
The Shuttle 662 follows a direct route, with no unnecessary diversions, taking you straight to the heart of Bradford City Centre or Keighley Town Centre.
The service runs at least every 10 minutes for most of the day on Mondays to Saturdays, and every 30 minutes evenings and Sundays, with later evening departures from Bradford until 12:15am at weekends
Here at Transdev, we are really keen to stay true to our roots as the local bus company in Keighley. Us and our predecessors have been serving the town since 1902. Our new name of The Keighley Bus Company is all about that and more - showing off how proud we are to serve the thousands of you who travel on our services across our town and beyond. And it's not just about looking back, but looking forward too - there's £2 million worth of amazing new buses hitting the streets with free wifi, USB power and many other great new features. We want to make getting about even simpler and easier as well - so there'll be a few changes, and easy-to-remember numbers from 24 July.continued...
