26/2/22


200 Leeds • Morley • Birstall • Cleckheaton

The route will be altered, no longer serving Woodlands Estate in Gomersal or Windsor Road, Howden Clough, reducing end-to-end journey times by 6 minutes. The Mon-Fri 0547 Cleckheaton to Leeds and Sat 0727 Cleckheaton to Leeds journeys will be withdrawn. Evening short journeys between Leeds and White Rose Centre will be withdrawn.


229 Leeds • Birstall • Heckmondwike • Hartshead • Huddersfield

The timing point at Gildersome will be moved to Wortley Wheatsheaf Junction. Some journeys will be slightly retimed. The route of the service will be unchanged.


28/2/22 9 White Rose Centre • Rothwell • Garforth • Seacroft • Horsforth • Wortley

This service will be revised to operate a new route via Garforth. The withdrawn section of the current route along Swillington Lane and Neville Grove will be served by the revised service 22 operated by Arriva. There will also be a route change in north Leeds to serve King Lane and Cranmer Bank. Most journeys will be retimed by around 10 minutes. The Saturday service will be significantly retimed. Service 9 between White Rose and Horsforth via Pudsey, operated by First, will remain unchanged.


21 / 22 Seacroft • Halton / Swillington

The services will continue to provide a combined hourly service Monday-Friday from Seacroft Bus Station to Colton, with service 21 continuing to Halton Lidl (as now), and service 22 extending to Swillington via Swillington Lane and Neville Grove, replacing the withdrawn section of Squarepeg service 9. The hours of operation will be extended to 0900-1700 (currently 0900-1430).


31 / 32 Horsforth • Holt Park

These services will be revised to provide a better service for eastern and southern areas of Horsforth, and to provide a service along Outwood Lane due to customer requests. Some short stretches of the old route with very low passenger usage (less than 1 passenger per day) will be unserved by the new route, although they will remain close to the new route.

This service will be revised and extended to operate between Wakefield, Ossett, White Rose and Leeds, partly replacing service 117. Due to a shortage of drivers, it will initially run on weekdays only, with a Saturday service to be introduced at a later date once sufficient drivers have been recruited.


117 Wakefield • Ossett • Shaw Cross • West Ardsley • White Rose • Leeds

This service will be withdrawn and replaced by extended service 116 between Wakefield, Ossett, White Rose and Leeds, new service 122 between Wakefield, Ossett and Shaw Cross; and by revised service 203 between Shaw Cross, West Ardsley, White Rose Centre and Leeds.
