Bus Services in York

It's snowing!

Where conditions make driving too difficult or dangerous, buses may be cancelled at short notice. If they make it through, they may be badly delayed. Unfortunately none of us can accurately predict what the weather will do, so we can't tell you in advance which buses will be running tomorrow...

I will keep the Twitter feed updated where I can, but I'm not going to be here 24/7, so your best plan is to check on each operator's own Twitter feeds, or phone the bus company you want to travel with.

Summer service

This service has now finished for Summer 2013. The Moorsbus network has been refused funding from NPA for 2014, so it is not yet known whether there will be a service at all in the future. If you want to see this service return next summer, please lobby your councillor, your MP and the National Parks Authority to try to convince them that the service is worthwhile. Why not join Friends of Moorsbus on Facebook?
