It's a tad faster on the buses

Council chiefs have come up with the funding for a new hourly bus service between Tadcaster and York in a bid to keep the town on the move while the flood-damaged road bridge over the Wharfe is rebuilt.

North Yorkshire county council has provided up to £20,000 to run the service for an initial 12 weeks after which it will be operated commercially.

Yorkshire Coastliner won the bid with its new Tadfaster route which will take just 20 minutes into York, the quickest bus ever to run into the city. Tadfaster provides an hourly service between 7am and 6pm Monday to Saturday.

It will run alongside the existing Coastliner service which operates as normal and continues to connect the town with Leeds, York and the east coast.

“This is good news for the people of our town”, said county councillor Chris Metcalfe, local member for Tadcaster.

“We continue to look for ways to support residents and Tadcaster’s economy while the painstaking and complex operation of reconstructing the main bridge continues over the coming months.

“We welcome this initiative as a good example of how the county council is working closely with bus operators, providing pump-priming to improve commercial services throughout the county.”
