A significant boost in bus services has been introduced in Keighley by a local West Yorkshire bus operator, eliciting appreciation from Bradford Council.

Transdev, the operator in question, has escalated its bus operations on the Airedale line linking Shipley and Leeds since September of the preceding year. Given the overwhelming response and patronage received, buses will now ply every twenty minutes, extending all the way to Keighley through The Keighley Bus Company.

The bus company has further announced the incorporation of an additional weekday morning service, ensuring arrival in Leeds before 9 am. Additionally, commuters can expect an extra bus during the late afternoon from Leeds to Keighley.

Councillor Alex Ross-Shaw, Bradford Council’s Executive Member for Regeneration, Planning and Transport, said: “I’m delighted Transdev has increased the journeys on such an important bus route in the district. These reliable, affordable services will help get people travelling in a more sustainable way and lead to a better-connected region.”

In tandem with the augmentation and extension of journeys on the Aireline, revisions to timetables have been outlined for several routes surrounding Keighley, aimed at enhancing operational reliability. These include services such as the 62 Keighley to Ilkley, 67 Keighley and Cullingworth to Bradford, theSHUTTLE Keighley and Bingley to Bradford, BronteBus Keighley to Haworth then Stanbury, Oakworth or Hebden Bridge, K14 Keighley to Scar Top & Oxenhope, K15 Keighley to Hainworth & Oakworth, and K16 Keighley to Scar Top & Haworth.
