Cityzap offers first-class luxury bus travel to a low price


Transdev’s subsidiary in North England, Cityzap, revealed its plan to turbocharge Yorkshire’s staycation summer – with the cheapest turn up and go inter-city return fare in Britain.

From early August, Cityzap slashed all return tickets on its premium express service linking Leeds and York to just one pound – saving up to an eye-watering £18.20 on the cost of the same journey by train.

The amazing offer will remain in place seven days a week throughout the rest of August, as Transdev drives forward its campaign to attract Yorkshire back to bus with a combination of first-class luxury and ultra-low fares.

We’ve been so encouraged by the success of our current Cityzap £1 return fare deal on Wednesdays that we’ve decided to offer it to all our current and new customers, seven days a week from this Sunday and throughout the remainder of August.

We invested £1.4 million in December of last year to create all-new fleet of five buses for our Cityzap express, each one built in Britain to our exclusive ‘Sky Class’ specification to attract people to switch from the car and the train to buses that people are proud to be seen on.

Our service runs direct between the two cities and takes customers straight to the heart of both, without parking charges or long walks to and from the railway station. With this incredible low fare, we hope to welcome many more people onto Cityzap and at the same time, deliver a welcome boost to the visitor economy in both York and Leeds in this staycation summer.
