First Bus West Yorkshire have announced a new bus service running from Skipton to Otley, via Ilkley.

First Bus West Yorkshire have announced details of a new bus service travelling from Skipton to Ilkley and Otley.

The 784 service will run every hour from Monday to Saturday, starting next week (13 July).

The transport provider has also announced that it is reintroducing stops on the X84 and X85 bus routes after suspending them last month. That will begin from Sunday (12 July).

Martin Hirst, Commercial Director of First West Yorkshire, said:

"While we had concerns over capacity with the opening up some retail during June, we haven’t seen a significant impact along the corridor and so are able to bring the bus stops back into use.

"We will continue to keep this under review as further lockdown restrictions are lifted and as we need to take into account any changes in social distancing measures.

"As we look further ahead, we are interested in examining ways we can introduce faster and more reliable journeys for customers on this corridor and we will work with councillors and partners including Connecting Leeds and West Yorkshire Combined Authority in taking this forward."
