A NEW bus service will provide a link between Keighley and Malham every Sunday and bank holiday over the summer.

The Cravenlink 866 – which is launched this weekend – will leave Keighley bus station at 9.25am and travel to Malham via Steeton, Airedale Hospital, Cross Hills, Skipton, Gargrave, Airton and Kirkby Malham.

Return buses will operate to Skipton, with connections to Keighley provided by the Dalesway 66 service.

And a through journey to Keighley leaves Malham at 5.30pm.

Also, access to Wensleydale and Swaledale has been further improved with the launch of Northern DalesBus 830, which connects with trains to and from Keighley.

The bus services are part of the DalesBus network.

A spokesperson says: "The national cap on bus fares applies so the single fare for any journey is just £2, or £1 for under-19s."
