All routes run at least every 15 minutes, 7 days a week. On most routes, services finish at about 8pm, but there is a full evening service to Rawcliffe Bar and Designer Outlet

With the exception of the 7, Park & Ride routes run an express service, calling at only one or two stops between the car park and the city centre. The 7 calls at all stops along the route.

A day return ticket costs £3.80. Up to 2 children (under 16) can travel free with every fare-paying adult. National Bus Passes are accepted on Park & Ride subject to usual time restrictions, but when boarding at the Park & Ride site there is a single fare of £1.30 (this does not apply when boarding at any other stop).

Parking is not allowed overnight at any of the Park & Ride sites, and many of the car parks are locked after the last bus.
