Bus drivers are helping to celebrate the launch of a new bus link on the 762 route which connects customers in Harrogate with Otley and Ilkley.

The Transdev bus which ran from Keighley to Ilkley every 30 minutes, will now continue every hour to Otley and Harrogate.

Alex Hornby, Transdev’s Chief Executive, said: “It’s so exciting to be linking these towns; it’s great that we can offer even better connections.

“The 762 is perfect for a day out, what an easy way to explore more of the Yorkshire countryside. We’ve also added early and late journeys for customers catching the bus to work.

“We’re making lots of improvements to our networks, we want customers to be really proud of their local services, and this is another step towards making that happen.”

The 762 runs from Keighley, Ilkley, Otley and Harrogate, adding Ben Rhydding, Burley in Wharfedale, Otley, Pool in Wharfedale and Pannal.
