More details have emerged ahead of the number 9 bus service reconnecting West Leeds residents cut off from public transport due to bus cuts earlier this year.
The controversial rerouting of the 508 service in March as part of a series of cuts by First Bus left Calverley Lane and parts of Leeds and Bradford Road with little or no bus service.
But as reported by WLD in May, independent company Yorkshire Buses, which also took on the number 9 route after it was axed by First, has come to the rescue after working with local councillors.
It is adding Calverley Lane and Leeds and Bradford Road to its number 9 route from Monday, 3 July 2023.
The company has today provided more details of the re-routed service between Horsforth Station to The White Rose Shopping Centre. Buses will be diverted in both directions to
serve Calverley Lane, Leeds Bradford Road, Upper Rodley Lane back to its current line of route at Rodley Town Street.
The two bus stops at the bottom of Coal Hill Lane at the junction of Town Street will no longer be served but Yorkshire Buses managing director Steve Carr says other bus stops are located along Town Street outside and opposite Rodley Park some 200 meters away.
The service will run Monday to Saturday every 60 minutes, including evenings.
From Monday 3 July the service 9 will also be diverted in both directions to serve Horsforth Vale and will also be extended to Horsforth Station to connect with trains to Leeds and Harrogate.
Single, daily, weekly and monthly tickets are all available from the driver and all Metro issued products and Elderly Citizens passes are accepted, and with the Mayor’s fares in place no journey will cost more than £2. Or get a DaySaver for £4.50 and explore West Yorkshire.
