This website is designed to help you get around the Yorkshire Dales area (including the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty) using public transport.
The wearing of a face covering is now compulsory on all public transport in England, other than for young children, disabled people and those with breathing difficulties. Click here for details. If you are using the bus or train you should also follow social distancing and wash or sanitise your hands before and after travel.
Most bus services are now running full timetables again, but please check our News Page for details of reduced timetables on some bus and train services in the area.
Buses and trains are all still operating with a reduced capacity in order to facilitate social distancing.
An overview of the main bus and train routes currently operating in the Yorkshire Dales is shown on this map.
There are many bus services within the Yorkshire Dales which run throughout the year (click here for a list), these are usually supplemented by extra DalesBus services during the Summer period, which normally mainly operate on Sundays and Bank Holidays from Easter until mid-October. However due to the COVID-19 outbreak we're sorry that most of these extra summer seasonal bus services will not run in Summer 2020.
