Keighley offers free Christmas Day bus service

November 26th, 2017 by Sandy

Keighly will again be offering a free Christmas Day bus service, run by volunteers. This year, to continue the 23-year old tradition, the bus service will be managed by fully qualified volunteers with Passenger Carrying Vehicle licence from the Town & District Transport Trust, instead of the Keighley Bus Museum Trust.

A spokesperson for the transport trust based in East Lancashire and West Yorkshire said the buses to be used, built in the 1990s, while not actually vintage in the real sense, will however provide a comfortable and warm journey during this part of the year. They will be run from 10am to 4pm in a timetable as in previous years.

Routes on this town in Bradford will include the circular route from Guard House to Braithwaite, on the number 18; the number 17 to Oakworth and the number 19 to Airedale Hospital. The main bus-stop in North Street, will be from one outside the Wetherspoon Livery Rooms, for all routes on Christmas Day’s free service.
