  • South Kirklees Bus Review

    Consultation on bus services in the South Kirklees / Huddersfield area is now closed. Changes came into effect on 27/28 Ocotber 2012.

    The South Kirklees Area Bus Network Review sought to examine Metro’s expenditure on bus services in the South 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 changed over the weekend of 27/28 October 2012.


    Most bus services in the South Kirklees Area are operated commercially and will not be affected by Metro’s review.


    South Kirklees is served by a number of core bus services (read more about the South Kirklees core routes)
