GO Bus

Bus Travel in Leeds Public transport is plentiful in Leeds and if you’re looking for a bus there’s sure to be one – or three – along at any moment. Three local bus companies, namely Black Prince, First Leeds and Metroline, as well as three national companies service Leeds and ensure that you get from A to B in comfort.

Black Prince is based in Morley, where the depot is also located. Black Prince buses are identifiable because of their distinctive red, maroon and yellow logos. The Black Prince name goes right back to 1968 when owner Brian Crowther purchased his first bus. From humble beginnings the company now has 36 buses running Monday to Saturday and 11 on Sunday.

If you’re looking for a local bus, check out Leeds City Bus Station [map], New York Street, you’ll find it next to Leeds Market. The bus station has more than 26 stands and a range of facilities including toilets, a cash machine and a bakery.

There are several travel centres within the station including The Metro Travel Centre and The Yorkshire Coastliner Ltd Centre. Metro buses offer a range of discounted fairs to get you across Leeds. If you’re planning to go out and about it’s worth investing in a West Yorkshire DayRover: a one-day leisure ticket giving you unlimited travel in West Yorkshire. Valid from 9:30am on weekdays and all day at weekends and on bank holidays.

A large percentage of the buses running from this station are Arriva Yorkshire and cover a wide area including Wakefield, Halifax and Dewsbury. In 1990 Yorkshire Coastliner Ltd was created and now has more than 20 buses servicing both North and West Yorkshire.

If, during your holiday in Leeds, you fancy going further a field, hop on board a Coastliner and pay a visit to the gothic town of Whitby or the old-fashioned village of Thornton-Le-Dale.

Alternatively, if you’re looking for an escape to the beach or a few hours in an amusement arcade Coastliner offers services to Bridlington and Scarborough, and can get you there from Leeds city centre in less than three hours.
