Public transport can offer a cost-effective alternative to travel by car, especially when you take into account the true costs of running a car; on top of the purchase costs, there’s fuel, tax, insurance, general maintenance and parking charges. It all adds up and with great deals on season tickets for bus and rail, there’s no better time to make the switch.

Your nearest bus stops are located close to your new home on Harrogate Road. These stops are served by bus numbers 7 and X70 that provide frequent services to Harrogate, Wetherby and Leeds City Centre; here you’ll find a range of restaurants, bars and high street retailers, not to mention a range of art galleries and beautiful outdoor spaces.

Alternative stops are located on Aire Road, served by services X98 and X99. Additionally service 780 provides 5 services per day (Monday to Saturday) to Knaresborough. Here you’ll find Knaresborough Castle, Mother Shipton’s Cave and the Courthouse Museum, giving you the perfect opportunity for a fabulous day out!
