Transdev in Yorkshire confirms 8 out of 10 trips during UK lockdown


We’re still here for you when you need us – that’s the message from Transdev’s subsidiary in Yorkshire, UK, the Keighley Bus Company, as it confirms over eight out of 10 journeys on its services will continue during the current lockdown.

The Keighley Bus Company will introduce temporary timetables on selected routes from this Sunday (10 January 2021) with schedules built around the needs of key workers, and on valued feedback from its customers throughout 2020.

Our message to our customers is that we are still very much here for you – our buses are clean, safe and ready to go, just as they have always been throughout the pandemic. We know from experience that our buses provide a vital service for key workers and others who depend on us to reach essential shops and services.

All of our routes will continue to run, just a little less often around shopping hours. Our first priority is to make sure key workers can get to and from work, and that essential journeys can still be made, using our buses in Keighley and across West Yorkshire.

We will still be running over 80 per cent of our usual journeys, and we will continue to help those who need to travel to do so, just as we did throughout last year’s restrictions. We thank our customers for their understanding and support, as we adapt to the reduction in the numbers travelling during the current lockdown.

Alex Hornby, CEO of The Keighley Bus Company
