Seasonal bus service will be just the ticket
1:52pm Thursday 1st May 2014 in News
A seasonal spring-to-autumn bus service will return to the Worth Valley this weekend.
The 812 Bronte Scenic Tour resumes on Sunday and Bank Holiday Monday. It will then run every Sunday and bank holiday until September 14.
The service connects Haworth Station and the Bronte Parsonage to Stanbury Village, Ponden Reservoir and Scar Top Pine at Moor Lodge. Departures from the Spar Store, opposite Haworth Station, are at 11.05am, 12.05pm, 1.05pm, 2.25pm, 3.25pm and 4.25pm.
All the return journeys from Scar Top Pine will be linked into Oxenhope Village, as the 812 now runs via Stanbury, Marsh Chapel, Oxenhope Station, Oxenhope Lowertown and Haworth Brow.
This gives Oxenhope residents an extra six journeys from their village into Haworth on Sundays, departing from Lowertown at 11.54am, 12.54pm, 2.14pm, 3.14pm, 4.14pm, and 5.14pm.
Ordinary Metro fares are charged and all Metro passes and concessions are valid.
Timetables are available from Keighley Civic Centre, Keighley Bus Station, Haworth Visitor Information Centre and Haworth Community Contact Point.
The service is sponsored and funded by the Worth Valley Joint Transport Committee, with additional support from Metro, Scar Top Pine Ltd and Worth Valley Ward councillors.
The bus and driver are provided by Transdev in Keighley, on contract to the Worth Valley Joint Transport Committee.
