NW Leeds Bus Consultation

North West Leeds Consultation Summary

Please see the below update received from First UK Bus via Cllr Barry Anderson;

Dear Stakeholder

Further to our earlier emails, I’d like to update you on the consultation on First bus services in NW Leeds that operate through Headingley.

In March we commenced the first phase of the consultation and collected over 1,000 responses from both on-line and drop-in sessions. Based on this feedback and our own data & research, we then presented a number of options through further consultation events and an on-line survey. All this information has now been considered and a set of changes has been developed that is now being registered this week for implementation from 22 October.

A summary of those changes is listed below with further detail in the attached document,

  • One journey per hour on service X84 will now run via Pool Monday to Saturday from c0700 to c1900 & a new evening timetable will operate with a new late journey from Leeds to Otley
  • Route 97 will retain its current route and will run every 20 minutes during the majority of the day, a new timetable has been designed to improve reliability
  • Service 19A will now extend from Tinshill to Yeadon via Trinity University and Rawdon. This will give new links to Rawdon Village and also improve links between Trinity and their students’ accommodation
  • Services 1, 6 and 28 will also receive new timetables to improve reliability
  • Changes will be made to driver duties to reduce cancellations, especially in the early evening
  • Service 29 will be revised to run every 30 minutes with an hourly evening service.

We will share the changes with those who took part in the consultation next week in advance of wider communication.

If we can provide any further information on this please don’t hesitate to contact Paul Turner (copied in) or myself.
