Keighley Area Bus Service Changes - Sunday 29th April 201213-04-2012
Following a recent review of local bus services undertaken by West Yorkshire PTE (Metro), some major changes will be made to times and routes from Sunday 29th April.
Changes to Services 66/66A - Keighley & Skipton via Cross Hills
The times of buses will change during the day on Mondays to Saturdays, with many journeys leaving Keighley 10 minutes later and leaving Skipton up to 12 minutes later, so please check the timetable carefully.
From Sunday 29th April, for journeys wholly or partly in North Yorkshire, fares for young people will be revised, with the young person's fare being set at 2/3 of the Adult fare, rounded down to the nearest 5p. Young people will still need to show suitable ID (eg Young Person's Saver Card) to obtain the discounted fare.
Adult Silver tickets issued by Transdev Burnley & Pendle and Transdev Lancashire United will be valid on services 66/66A between Keighley and Skipton from 29th April. Silver tickets are valid throughout on Transdev Burnley & Pendle's Mainline services and on Lancashire United's X80/280 services.
A further change was made from 1st May, with the Monday to Friday journey on route 66 from Keighley to Skipton extended beyond Skipton Bus Station to serve Skipton schools. As a result, the 0835 journey has been re-timed to depart Skipton Bus Station at 0840, then at all subsequent stops running 5 minutes later than the tie shown in our printed timetable.
