The latest government advice is to stay at home and avoid non-essential travel.
If you still need to travel, you should visit gov.uk/coronavirus for the latest advice.
Many bus and train services in the area are operating reduced timetables due to the global coronavirus outbreak.
A summary of changes to bus and train services in West Yorkshire is available on the Metro website.
A summary of changes to bus services in Cumbria is available on the Cumbria County Council website.
North Yorkshire County Council, the West Yorkshire Combined Authority and Lancashire County Council have made arrangements for most bus companies to accept concessionary bus passes for free travel at all times, helping older people and those with disabilities to access shops and supermarkets earlier in the day.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak the start date of the summer seasonal DalesBus network has been delayed until further notice.
UPDATE FROM DALES & BOWLAND COMMUNITY INTEREST COMPANY:
Many summer seasonal DalesBus services into and around the Yorkshire Dales National Park and Nidderdale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty usually start at Easter weekend.
We are sorry to advise however that this year, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have reluctantly decided to delay the introduction of these services until further notice. We will aim to introduce them as soon as possible following the easing of government guidance on social distancing and non-essential travel, whenever that happens.
In the meantime we will endeavour to continue operating our all-year Sunday DalesBus services 855 and 856 to facilitate essential journeys for local residents for as long as appropriate. However we are sorry that DalesBus Sunday services 873, 874 and 884 are now suspended until further notice.
The latest updates on bus and train services in the Yorkshire Dales area will continue to be available on our news page and on Twitter @dalesbus
