  • North Kirklees Bus Review

    Consultation on bus services in the North Kirklees area (including Batley, Cleckheaton, Dewsbury, Heckmondwike and Mirfield)is now closed. Changes will come into effect on 26/27 January 2013.


    The North Kirklees Area Bus Network Review sought to examine Metro's expenditure on bus services in the North Kirklees area. The main aim was to maintain an effective bus network for the District at a lower cost to the local taxpayer. The bus services will change over the weekend of 26/27 January 2013.


    North Kirklees is served by a number of core bus services (pdf 111.7kb, opens in new window).


    Consultation took place during May and July 2012 and we received a lot of comments. We would like to thank everyone that contributed. Your comments helped us make some changes to our proposals.

    Main outcomes following consultation and tendering:-


    • A number of journeys proposed to be withdrawn will now be retained or re-timed.
    • Service 256 will be retained as a limited peak time Monday - Friday Service.
    • A new service 259 will be introduced to maintain an hourly link to Cleckheaton from Hunsworth, Scholes and Foldings Estate.
    • Headfield Road will continue to be served by Service 130
    • Some journeys on service 205 which were proposed for withdrawal will be maintained for one year on a use it or lose it basis.


    Arriva also made a number of changes to the services they operate on a commercial basis as a result of the bus network review.
