KEIGHLEY Bus Company is restoring some of its key services to pre-lockdown timetables.

The changes will take place from Sunday (April 11) on its Aireline Keighley-Shipley-Leeds route and the Shuttle, between Keighley and Bradford, with the addition of later buses on both services Friday and Saturday evenings.

Plus, the Mainline M4 Keighley-Colne-Nelson-Burnley service will be increased to run every 30 minutes daytime Monday to Saturday, with pre-lockdown times resuming in the evenings and on Sundays.

Keighley Bus Company chief executive officer, Alex Hornby, says: “We’re working hard now to get everything ready for an amazing staycation summer as we all look forward to getting out and about more often.

“We’ve always been proud to say that our buses are clean, safe and ready to go, and we know that maintaining the highest standards is vital to making sure everyone who travels can do so confidently.

“Each of our buses receives an overnight deep clean, using virucidal fog proven to be highly effective, while our teams are ready at our bus stations to hop on board and clean touch-points throughout the day.

“Our buses play a critical role in supporting the reopening of Yorkshire’s economy – and we can’t wait to welcome our customers back to our clean and safe buses as lockdown eases, shops reopen and many of us start to return to some normality.”

Keighley Bus Company is producing printed timetables and updated information at bus stops ahead of the changes, which come in readiness for the latest easing of Government Covid restrictions.

Information on timetables and tickets is also available at and via the Transdev Go app.
