Update: Bus Service Changes

Due to bus driver shortages, Arriva Yorkshire will be reducing its network from the 25/10/21 to allow it time to recruit and train new drivers. Although only a small number of these services directly impact Hunslet and Riverside ward residents - they may impact their connecting journeys to elsewhere.
